This bug was fixed in the package ghostscript - 8.63.dfsg.1-0ubuntu6

ghostscript (8.63.dfsg.1-0ubuntu6) intrepid; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/42_gs-init-ps-delaybind-fix.dpatch: Make "ps2ascii" working
    again (LP: #281419, upstream bug #690124).

  * debian/patches/45_bjc600-bjc800-pdf-input.dpatch: Fix setting of the
    "DitheringType" option. With PDF input Ghostscript crashes, with
    PostScript input the "DitheringType" option was probably ignored
    (Upstream bug #690032).

  * debian/patches/48_cups-output-device-pdf-duplex-uninitialized-memory.patch.dpatch:
    Fixed several bugs in the "cups" (CUPS Raster) output device:
     - Ghostscript crashed with PDF input data
     - The "Duplex" and "MediaWeight" options were ignored
     - There was uninitialized memory and wrong usage of pointers, potential
       cause for segmentation faults or even vulnerabilities
     - There were mismatches in data types, leading to possible breakage
       of the "AdvanceDistance", "MediaWeight", and "cupsStringXX" options.
    (Upstream bug #690101).
