I believe that the problem is caused by the fact that dvips puts
a "papersize" declaration into the ps file which remains even after
GSView has created the eps file.
Thus, after the eps file has been created you need to edit it and
remove the lines
%%BeginPaperSize: a4
(which occurred as lines 1119 to 1121 in circuit11.eps when I
did this).
Then epstopdf produces the desired output.

It seems to me that epstopdf should search for and remove
papersize statements. (Maybe the latest version does -- I'm
sure I have an old version since I usually use distiller for
this (and still have to remove the papersize stuff).)
