OK conveniently enough I have exactly the same printer as you, also
via JetDirect. Mine takes ages to render the PostScript in Windows mode too, but prints very quickly using the PCL driver. Are you sure when you
are printing in Windows you are using the PS driver?

Hmmm, on Windows the PS driver takes just as long and fails before it
completes amurdove.

That's pretty much what I see (well I didn't get a file to fail to
render, but it took ages). On the other hand if you use the PCL
driver on Linux (so Ghostscript renders the Postscript) it seems to
work fine. You might try that one out too.

I thus conclude (apart form the page size problem) I'm producing pretty
much the right Postscript (meaning the same as Xtreme), but it's too
complex for the LaserJet to handle. Printing to it in PCL mode works
because GS rasterizes it. I think it's a memory size issue because I've got
the rather mode complex probe to render on both PCL and PS.

Are you using the HPLIP driver on Linux?
HPLIP/HPIJS seem to work much better than direct postscript printing. Printing happens in about a minute or so and is more complete (in the amurdove case)
