'gs' is killing my system

I created a ps file from the link http://techbase.kde.org/Getting_Started/Build/KDE4 using konqueror. Now if I want to open that file in KGhostView, the whole system is going down. In ‘top’ , I can see ‘gs’ is eating most of the memory. Within 30 seconds the load average goes up 8.11 and I turned off the laptop forcefully.

I am having a Core Duo 1.60GHz with 1 GB ram. You can check the file here.
