Problem saving to eps with usetex=True

I don't see such any error and I'm not sure if the error is related
with my patch since the ps backend does not use dviread module.

Darren didn't include the complete traceback, but it seems that dviread
does get used by TexManager.get_text_width_height_descent unless the
text.latex.preview parameter is set. So if preview.sty is available,
setting the parameter might help with that particular problem.

I thought subprocess.el handled EINTR, but apparently not:

I guess the reason why some people run into this and others don't is
that (some) GUI toolkits make use of signals, and the probability of
receiving a signal while reading from the subprocess pipe depends on
various system-specific details.
