The manual explains that this procedure doesn't work, and tells you what 
you have to do - see below.

A related question for Otfried:  IPE doesn't seem to accept 
cut-and-paste from other Windows applications - certainly I can't cut 
and paste Maple graphics into IPE.  Is this likely to change in future 
versions?  The ability to copy graphics into IPE and edit them (as 
bitmaps) would be very useful.

That said, the concept of IPE and its integration with latex is 
excellent - the days are gone when I had to fiddle around with the 
psfrag package to get Latex into diagrams.
