Gv hangs when trying to display PS file

Whenever I try to open a PS (or EPS) file with gv it just shows a blank canvas and a “busy” cursor. There are not any error messages if I run it from a terminal. While this sort of behaviour has in the past been seen on improperly terminated PS files, in this case gv opens and displays the same files on an openSuSE machine. The same files also display correctly using okular, but I specfically needed gv’s ability to show the offsets.

$ pacman -Q gv
gv 3.7.4-5

openSuSE also has 3.7.4
