[tex-live] Place two \epsfboxes vertically centered next to each other

Dear all,
the following problem has been brought to my attention by private
communication: In the CWEB example program 'skew-ternary-calc.w' by Don
Knuth
(https://github.com/ascherer/cwebtest/blob/master/skew-ternary-calc.w)
there are multiple occurrences of this construct:
$$\vcenter{\epsfbox{...}}\qquad\\qquad
\vcenter{\epsfbox{...}}$$
where '...' are names of MetaPost graphics from 'skew-ternary-calc.mp'
(https://github.com/ascherer/cwebtest/blob/master/skew-ternary-calc.mp).
Running 'for i in skew-ternary-calc; do mpost $i; cweave $i; tex $i;
dvipdfm $i; done' produces extreeemely 'overful boxes' and results in a
PDF with several displays where the right-hand graphic is outside the
page frame.
Adding '\hbox{...}' around almost all the '\epsfbox{...}'es seems to fix
this problem.
A simple $$\vcenter{\epsfbox{...}}$$ works fine, but as soon as some
other material comes alongside the '\epsfbox{...}' all hell breaks loose.
Any ideas what's going on here?
Thanks, Andreas
