I gave this a shot, and eps2eps seems not to have any effect on the bounding box.  I've done some experiments where I reduce the bounding box by hand, which works really well - the only problem is I need a way to determine where the edge of my plot really is.

In Basemap, there is a box drawn around my map.  I'm pretty sure this is just the axis border, and I need to find a way to determine which of the many drawing commands in the postscript file represents this border.  

Is there a way to set the color of this plot box in matplotlib, so that I can use that as a clue in the postscript?

if that's the problem.
