Aye, and there's the rub -- and why I'm not just (for example) using 
LaTeXiT: I need to do this for a whole bunch of files on an ongoing

I have to admit I didn't understand a good bit of that on the first 
couple of passes, but I was able to jigger the tex-only [i.e. no shell 
script necessary] code in the middle to work for me by adding a minipage 
environment inside the lrbox.  (Otherwise I couldn't get text and 
equations to work together properly in the lrbox.)  This works well 
enough for my purposes, since I'm ok with a fixed width -- it was the 
height that I really wanted to be set dynamically.

Thanks much for the help!

I hadn't known about <http://mactextoolbox.sourceforge.net/index.html> 
up to this point, though, so that's a great discovery!
