Same problem here.
EPS-files were created in Freehand and are still in use here...
EPS-Files created in Illustrator cann be placed with import options showing and change the tif-preview to "change postscript to pixel" ( I am using the german version, so I do not know the engish translation".
This solution is not working with Freehand EPS data because the error message shows up before getting into the import options...
