This problem came up with version 6 for graphics rendered using
GraphicsComplex. It has been discussed in this group. The best solution
is to use File->PrintSelection. In the printer menu chose "save" to
print to a pdf.

The drawback is, the picture takes a whole page, so you have to open it
in a graphics program like GraphicsConverter (on Mac) to adjust the region.
