That's odd -- I created a quick line drawing in Frame
to test it before I posted that, and eps2eps made a
good tight bounding box for me. Try it again, but
copy your drawing to a *blank* page (no headers or
footers) before printing to PS.

Another possible cause could be objects hidden beyond
the visible portion of the anchored frame -- I've run
into that before & it caused no end of trouble. Try
pasting the drawing into a new anchored frame (but
*don't* use Select All or you'll carry any hidden
objects along anyway).

Also, upgrade to GS 8.00 or later if possible; I ran
into no end of problems with GS 7.xx.

Perhaps you should just redraw the graphic using a
free tool like xfig, Dia, or OpenOffice Draw and
save it as EPS... you probably would have spent less
time doing that than trying all these other things. :-P
