You are right that this is indeed a problem with ghostscript. It may be
possible that we could tell ghostscript how to avoid running into this
problem, but I do not know how.

Ah, I guess I should have been more clear. Your solution is what I
eventually resorted to. But I guess my question was more about---if you had
an idea of how to make the bounding box work properly. Tex4PPT didnt seem to
have this problem. It seems to be a ghostscript issue.

The problem is probably due to using white for the foreground. The bounding
box computation sees only non-white pixels. Try changing the color to
0.9,0.9,0.9

Hi,

I find that the bounding boxes for equations in which 'matrix',
'pmatrix' etc. are used, result in EMFs with the brackets, braces etc. being
chopped off. Does anyone know how to avoid this problem? I'm including the
latex and a snapshot of the problem here.

latex:
\documentclass{article}\pagestyle{empty}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{color}
\definecolor{white}{rgb}{1,1,1}
\color{white}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\begin{eqnarray}
\begin{pmatrix}
1 & 2 & 3 & 4\\
5 & 6 & 7 & 8\\
9 &10 &11 &12\\
13&14 &15 &16
\end{pmatrix}
\end{eqnarray}
\end{document}
