True embedded EPS files doesnt show in Acrobat,
but I cant get them to print on a PS printer either.
Tried different RIP engines and they give this errormessage:

RIP: PostScript Error:  syntaxerror; OffendingCommand: bin obj seq, type =
128, elements = 1, size = 15365, unused field not zero
RIP: Flushing: rest of job (to end-of-file) will be ignored
