Can anyone else verify this problem, and/or explain why this happens and how we

can fix it?

Not a minimal example! :-)

I can at least replicate the behavior with

\documentclass{minimal}

\usepackage{amssymb}

\usepackage{fourier}

\begin{document}

$\mathbb{N}$

\end{document}

Compiled with pdfeTeX, Version 3.141592-1.30.4-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.5)

and transformed into eps with dvips(k) 5.95b on a Mac running

the GW distribution.

The bounding boxes are

with fourier: %%BoundingBox: -11 709 100 717

without fourier: %%BoundingBox: 91 709 102 718

If I change the $\mathbb{N}$ into $a$ the bounding boxes become

right (apart from a small difference due to the different fonts):

both have 91 709 as lower left corner. The same if I change \mathbb

into \mathbf or \mathcal.

The character N is unimportant, the same happens with A.

The dvi appears the same for both files. If I add some text before

the $\mathbb{N}$, the bounding box becomes correct.

So I guess that the Blackboard Bold characters in fourier are the

problem.

Ciao

Enrico
