This is a bug in Mma 3.0. To get rid of it, you can either
buy the bug-fix Mma 3.01 or follow the instructions on

which works for me. It is also possible to modify the exported
epsf file by hand which might be usefull if you are using
Mathematica from the CD rom and can´t/don´t want to exchange
the headers file.

By the way, is there anybody who has found the above page by browsing
or searching for it without having the link already? I think it is
*really* hard to find.
