Another way (I got no human reply from WRI when i asked similar
question) is to correct the bounding box info at the top of the eps
file. View the eps in Ghostscript, get the correct bounding box info by
looking at the status line as you move the cursor, and replace the
bounding box coords in the raw eps file. works for me, but I'm appalled
by WRI's laxitude.
