Karl made some changes to config.ps a few days ago so that it should no more be
necessary to use -t unknown. I think his question was: could you confirm that it
works now (I mean, with up-to-date tl09 pretest) even without -t unknow for you?

(IIRC, the problem arose even with the simplest beamer document:

\frame{Foo bar.}

Now it works for me, thanks to Karl's changes.)
