  All of them produce an image with less pixels than the conversion in 
Gimp... (235x235 instead of 326x326).

If you look at the EPS it specifies a 235x235 bounding box, and a scale 
factor to shoehorn the diagram in it. If you edit the EPS to work with a 
1:1 scale and a sufficient bounding box (2 lines to edit, no hard to 
script), the output of convert is OK. You can likely ask convert to 
scale down the graphic at that point and get correct results, scaling is 
always best done as the last thing in the process.
