Beamer uses a 12.8cm x 9.6 cm page size (or at least that's the size my 
pdf comes out), so this happens when you specify a larger page size 
(like A4 or letter) on the dvips command line. You don't say how you're 
invoking dvips, but I suspect you have something like "-t a4" or "-t 
letter" on your command line -- if you remove that, your pdf should look

Is the logo file an .eps file residing somewhere that LaTeX & friends 
can find it? I've only ever had this problem if the file was the wrong 
format or in the wrong location.
