xdvi figure rendering broken with gs 9.26

    -       "/xdvi$run {$error /newerror false put {currentfile cvx execute} stopped pop} "
    +       "/xdvi$run "
    +       "{$error /newerror false put currentfile cvx stopped {handleerror} if} "

Sadly, it doesn't work for me with gs 9.27 (installed unmodified from
the original source), and the original test .tex+.eps from
https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24941. The figure space still
comes up empty (and still shows up fine with 9.26).

Or is that the new expected behavior? (I'm missing how anything gets
executed now.) That would mean PS rendering is doa, since GS will
presumably never bring back those operators :(. --thanks, karl.
