Tex sometimes doesn't report correct bounding boxes, or, more precisely, 
the actual glyphs stick out of the bounding box of the text.

Ipe 7.1.1 introduced a new style sheet setting <textpad> to solve this 
problem.  It will automatically enlarge all text bounding boxes by the 
specified amount.

Try adding this sheet to your document:

<ipestyle name="textpad">
<textpad left="2" right="2" top="2" bottom="2" />
