difax sizing

NOTE: The difax mailing list is no longer active. The list archives are made available for historical reasons.

We've been printing difax maps using g3topbm and pnmtops with good results until recently. Lately we are seeing many of the 4 panel maps being printed incorrectly, only two panels to a page and with those 2 panels being significantly larger than before. The perl script I use to do the printing is very simple and uses the following line to do the converting and printing: g3topbm $argv[1] | pnmtops -width 11 -height 17 | lp
where $argv[1] is the difax map to print and the pnmtops tries to set the image 
for an 11X17 printer page.

Does anyone know why the 4 panels could be printing wrong and/or have a better 
way to resize the images for an 11x17 printer?

Thanks in advance!
