Background in EPS export in R2014b

I upgraded from R2013b to R2015b and now have problems with exporting figures to EPS format. My problem is slightly different than other problems reported before.
>> x=[0 20]; y=[0 8]; plot(x,y);
>> axis equal; axis tight
>> print -depsc my_picture.eps
The key is that the graph doesn't occupy the full figure window. When I include the picture in LaTeX (generating a dvi-file), the old pictures were nicely clipped but the new pictures have a lot of white-space around them that obscure other pictures, the caption, etc.
  • the BoundingBox looks good: 44 81 386 234
  • the PageBoundingBox is different: 0 0 420 315, but doesn't affect the behavior
  • two white rectangles are plotted in PostScript: 0 0 560 420 reIf I remove two of these lines then it works ok.
Is there a way to solve this in Matlab? For instance setting the background of the figure to 'transparent'?
Thanks, Edwin

Nope, doesn't work for me. My problem is that the axes don't fill the figure intentionally. Therefore the figure should be automatically resized or clipped in order to show the axes only, instead of the axes being expanded in order to fill the figure.
