Visio 2003 print to PostScript problem

When printing to a PS printer driver (any PS printer driver we've tried)
from Visio 2003 - not from earlier versions - Visio always changes the
font names to F0, F1, F2 and so on instead of keeping the actual names
like Arial and Times-Roman. This causes problems downstream, where we
convert the resulting .ps print files to another file format and we
don't know which fonts are supposed to be used.

Anyone seen this before? Anyone knows how to change this? We tried
playing with the printer driver settings to no avail, so it seems to be
Visio that's causing this.

Printing to PDF does not have this problem, but our purposes, we need to
print to PostScript.

This is kind of urgent and I'm on digest, so if you could copy me on
your reply to the list I would greatly appreciate it.
