There are some obvious reasons why Ipe's formatting can be different 
from what you get in another document.  One main reason is that Ipe text 
objects are formatted inside an \hbox.

By isolating the text object in a separate Ipe file and then manually 
running Ipe on the generated text.tex, one can generally figure out what 
is going on.

However, this is not the problem in your case:

\newcommand{\tsc}[1]{\textit{\scriptsize #1}}
   This is it: $q_{\tsc{min}}$.

   And again: \hbox{$q_{\tsc{min}}$}.

This gives the same output in both cases, and the error message you 

>  LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `OT1/lmr/m/it' undefined
>  (Font)              using `OT1/lmr/m/n' instead on input line 54.

You can switch all fonts to use T1 encoding by putting this in the preamble:


Then the error message goes away, but my dvips/yap/pdflatex could no 
longer find the actual font.  I had to add "cork-lm.map" to the list of 
font map files - but that might have been a problem with my miktex setup.
