No. But it seems that the dvips uses automatically A4, the two different
pdfs (one via pdflatex, one via dvips-ps2pdf) also contain different
page formats:
	210x297mm (A4)

Interestingly the top margin of the pdflatex version when printed was
*huge*, much too big.

Anyway, it was my stupid error, let's forget about it.

Best wishes

The ridiculous two-inch hunch that people adopt when arriving late for
the theatre in the vain and futile hope that it will minimise either
the embarrassment of the lack of visibility for the rest of the
audience. c.f. hickling.
