Have you installed or removed any fonts (or applications which may
contain fonts) that may have caused the change in behavior?  You can
alter the appearance by explicitly specifying "FontType"->"Outline":

Export["~/Desktop/test.eps", StyleBox[ToBoxes@Sqrt[21/x],
   PrivateFontOptions -> {"FontType" -> "Outline"}]]

This problem will be fixed in a future release of Mathematica.
