I haven't had this problem before (though I've seen similar problems).
Could you send me (uuencoded) the .fig and .eps file, so that I can
try and reproduce your problem?

Well, xfig uses ghostscript for postscript files, but if you just
include jpg's then ghostscript isn't used.

No, I don't have any idea. But I would like to reproduce your
problems here (could you sent me the .jpg too, with an .fig
that loads it and generates errors? Just one uuencoded .tar.gz
file would be great).
