It's a limit of Postscript/EPS, or at least, a limit of the version
we're using. It may have been added in later versions of Postscript.
This is fixed in CVS some time ago, though the fix is not 100% (in
particular gradient only works on fill, not stroke, and does not work
on text until you convert it to path).
