I'm still not on Tiger, and on Panther I've seen Apple's pstopdf fail 
quite often (IMO). Can you send my your EPS file privately for some 
investigation here? Could be in December (even before Christmas?) I'll 
update to Mac OS X 10.4.3 for another test ...

One obvious problem pstopdf has is, that it can't work with files that 
are valid PostScript and do not contain for example Times or Helvetica 
fonts while loading and using them. Any RIP, soft or hard, must be able 
to work on this documents, a PDF file too does not need to contain the 
usual set of 14 PostScript fonts (Apple's LaserWriters and HP's desktop 
LaserJets had 35 PostScript fonts).
