### Font disappears partly in included postscript graphics.

Since some time (at least one year) I encounter the following problem from time to time. As I'm not able to fix it (though I found some workarround) I'd like to ask you, if you can help me.

A small example is the following:

\documentclass{scrartcl}\usepackage{times}\usepackage{graphicx}\begin{document}\section{Test}\includegraphics[width=3cm]{bsp.eps}\end{document}

And the file bsp.eps looks like this:

%!PS-Adobe-3.0 EPSF-3.0%%Pages: 1%%BoundingBox: 0 0 24 24%%DocumentData: Clean7Bit%%Page: 1 1%%EndComments/pgsave save def 200 dict begin22.8 22.8 scale  /Helvetica-Bold findfont 0.65 scalefont setfont0.3 0.3 moveto (?) show 0.05 setlinewidth0 0 1 1 rectstroke end pgsave restore showpage%%EOF

When running latex and dvips, in the resulting postscript file the question mark in the image is not shown. (After ps2pdf it's shown, but in the wrong place.) The error does not occur, when I remove the \section-command or when I remove the \usepackage{times}. Strange as is, the question mark appears, when I replace the \section-command by \section{Test?} (added a question mark). Using article instead of koma-script scrartcl works too.

I'm using debian stable distribution. Any ideas?
