On earlier versions of matplotlib there was a figure sizing issue when
you saved from tkagg -> postscript or eps, but I thought this was
cleared up. Eg when I run examples/simple_plot.py with TkAgg backend
and then save test.eps, I don't see any figure size issues.
Are you using the latest version 0.53.1? If so can you post a test
script that reproduces the eps figure size problem you describe. In
the latter case I can probably fix it pronto.
