Yes, it seems that as soon as LaTeX becomes more complicated than  
programming LaTeXit, I am far less confident ;-)

Yes, adding \normalsize\selectfont just before the box declaration  
makes it work; great ! Do I really need \normalsize ? Isn't  
\selectfont sufficient ?

Thank you very much for the bonus explanation, that makes the problem  
very clear. What would be LaTeXiT without you ? :-)
