That’s strange. I have a gs 9.07, compiled from the sources, running on on Mac OS X as well as 9.10 and some other versions
but couldn’t provoke a similar error.
Could you post (an URL to) the intermediate PDF like /var/spool/cups/tmp/00d6c54692e8a?
You’d stop the printer before printing the respective page to catch that file before it gets deleted again (as superuser)
