My grateful thanks to Art and Syed for much help and moral support.
Syed - you were right, I should have tried MIF-washing the problem chapter
first. After doing so, I got a .ps file that Distiller could distill, but with
a Ps error, and recovery, producing a PDF with the message 'PostScript error
(undefined filename)' where the problem graphic should have been - and thus
identifying the problem file.
What Distiller actually said was 'A PostScript error occurred. FrameMaker is
attempting recovery.' That's a *really* helpful error message ;-) And one that
also implies co-operation between Distiller and FrameMaker, which I doubt.
I am reminded of some prototype software I once had to work with that died with
the message 'Got surprised by error'.
So this is a substantial step forward: I now only have to find out what was
wrong with this graphic (a PDF). Converting it to a TIFF fixed the issue.
Many thanks to all.
