problem with a slash when converting form eps to pdf

Hello -

I made a simple figure with a slash in a text label:

from pylab import *
plot([1,2,3])
xlabel(r’$a^2/b$’)

Then I save this figure as EPS and convert to PDF using Ghostview.

What happens? In the EPS file the slash between a^2 and b looks great,
in the PDF file the slash has disappeared.

Has anybody seen this before?? Any solution?

Thanks,

Mark

Works fine for me, using either ps2pdf or epstopdf. I have
gnu-ghostscript-8.16.
