I must say I'm a bit lost with your problem.  For instance you say the
printer is not PostScript, but you don't explain the technique you use
to convert a2ps' output, nor do you precise whether a2ps is the only
tool you have problems with.

Also, what encoding are you using?  If Latin 2, then it might happen
that a2ps' redefinition of the fonts (thanks Juliusz for Ogonkify :)
consumes too much memory.  But since I don't know how PostScript is
converted for your printer, maybe my comment does not apply.

Sorry I can't help you more.
