This is normal, really. Postscript is less sophisticated about such  
things that experience with modern image formats might lead you to  
expect. It assumes it's talking to a printer.

If you tell your postscript viewer to use a 792x612 paper size, it  
works fine. Otherwise, viewers tend to assume you want to print on A4  
or letter, portrait media.

Are you calling cairo_ps_surface_set_size()? cairo_ps_surface_set_eps 
()? Either of those might help. An EPS file can describe its target  
size which often gives better crop or autorotation behaviour.
