ps.map: the "M" highlight problem

Using any highlight on text and labels produces some very bad looking results. I call this the "M" problem, because I first noticed it in labels with a capital M, but other letters are affected too. I've attached a sample that pretty clearly shows the problem.
I see two pretty easy ways to fix this: temporarily change (1) the miter length or (2) the line join style when the highlight path gets stroked. I've chosen the latter, because I think it looks better. I've attached a patch for ps/ps.map/prolog.ps. It is marked as a binary file for some reason, so I was not able to do "svn diff". I've also attached the same ps.map output sample made after the fix.
