Somehow with my own data and not using the awkward bit, it worked on my 
Linux machine?  At least I thought it did, since I believe show.dvi is 
an exported function, can't you just overwrite it in your global 
environment and anything that calls it will use your copy?  I'll have to 
  look into how I got your code working on my system, because I know I 
didn't use that trick!
