I tried the following sequence (from the command-line)

take the full-page ps file and push it though


This will give you an eps with inline preview (in postscript comments, so
programs don't usually see it)

This epsi file can then be processed by epstopdf, giving a nicely cropped pdf

BTW, I never had any problems with eps created by Igor, try to swich off the
preview option when creating the eps. I don't use the -hires option for
epstopdf, maybe that helps too.
