However, if my drawing extends beyond the edges of the canvas (which I
set on the PS surface before I turn it into EPS), the bbox of EPS will
be same as canvas, not extended to cover all of objects. In other
words, EPS only contracts the bbox but cannot extend it. Is this
expected behavior? It seems not quite logical to me.
