Thanks for your hint, its of its own value. But this is not the problem
I fight with. I am using "menu/edit/save Selection As special"  to
export eps graphics. This works perfectly even with psfrag. The problem
is the graphics rendering subsystem in Win98 (problem does not exist on
ATI with win 2000) with a Neomagic AV256 mobile video card.

I cant use the Mathematica notebook for demonstrations in the way I
discribed any more. The export to eps and TeX graphics and the eps
rendering using gsview is working as desired.
