A collegue told me that this happened to him only when he used transparent objects in his plots, otherwise, also a 3D surface was represented as 'neat' vector information in his eps.

My version of matlab makes a semi-arbitrary choice to switch to either the z-buffer or gl-renderer if the plot becomes "to complex". To be sure to get the most vector-base eps I explicitly tell print to stick to the painters renderer

I'd do:
print(f1,'-depscs -painters','name')
