Attached is a patch for pdftoipe that handles the plusminus sign and 
defines an Ipe symbol "bullet" to be used for the dot symbols that 
pstricks creates in this weird way using a Symbol font.  This is 
somewhat of a hack and you probably need to play with the size of the 
symbol to get it to exactly match the pstricks version, but at least the 
file converts fine and looks correct.
