Thank you for mentioning the dvips reencoding, because I just found that 
the dvi file contains all the slashes and parentheses, but the ps file 
does not, so something is happening in the dvi -> postscript conversion.
dvips it run simply as 'dvips -o in.dvi'

a) It is mathematica version

b) I am not shure how dvips is configured on this machine, but 
everything works fine when I don't use the notebook2e and wrisym 
packages in my latex document.

I have tried with and without mathematica including the mathematica 
fonts in the EPS files by using the ConversionOptions -> 
{"IncludeSpecialFonts" -> True} in the Export command, and with and 
without StandardForm output in the plots, but it makes no difference.

Is it possible to stop the notebook2e and wrisym packages influencing 
how my latex document looks outside of my mathematica-notebook code
