A while back someone noticed that pdftricks was producing pstricks  
figures that were slightly clipped. This was especially true for  
glyphs that extended outside of their defined box; e.g., the bottom  
of the 3 and the z in CM. Pdftricks produces external files, one for  
each pstricks figure, that are processed (usually using \write18)  
using latex->dvips->ps2eps->epstopdf. I thought, at that time, the  
problem was in the ps2eps processing but maybe it was the epstopdf side.

I made an experimental version of pdftricks which used the steps  
latex->ps2pdf13->pdfcrop and the problem disappeared. I also added  
the `-dAutoRotatePages=/None' as an option to ps2pdf13.

By the way, it appears that ps2pdf is equivalent to ps2pdf13 not  
psd2pdf14. Don't know why that's true. I wonder if there will be a  
pdf 1.5 generator.

I'm not sure I added anything useful to the discussion but it seemed  
as though it might.

Good Luck,
