Stupid question: You did remember to close the graphics device when
you generated those plots (dev.off())? 

If an EPS file doesn't work with an Adobe product, there is some
reason to suspect that the file is corrupted or that there is an issue
with R's postscript driver. If you're seeing text corruption outside
the plot, then surely the E in EPS (for "encapsulated") is not working
as intended. 

Did you try the pdf() driver? That usually comes out rather nicely in
connection with Acrobat/Distiller.
