Just to revisit this quickly, the bug actually does exist but only when using both the CustomTicks and MathPSfrag packages to export the graphics. I'll have to take it up with their authors, but in the meantime something like the code I originally posted is quite useful to work around the problem if you are indeed using MathPSfrag. If you are not, it produces distort ticks, as I found. Explaining why I thought there was a problem and then got confused: the problem *did* occur in my test suite, but when I slimmed it down to post here I got rid of MathPSfrag, which removed the problem -- except that the display bug mentioned by David tricked me into thinking the problem was still there!
