legend.m has been rewritten for (OpenGL toolkits only). This bug should now be fixed.

Marking ready for test.

I found the following workaround

x = linspace (1, 2);
semilogy (x, x);
h = ylabel ('ylabel')
pos = get(h, 'Position');
legend ('TSFP', 'Location','NorthWest');
set (h, 'Position', pos + [-0.05,0,0])
print ('-depslatexstandalone', '-F:16', 'tstleg')
system ('latex tstleg.tex')
system ('dvips -E tstleg.dvi -o tstleg.eps')

Maybe this is related to bug #39697, comment #15. The following

x = linspace (1, 2);
semilogy (x, x);
ylabel ('ylabel')
h = legend ('TSFP', 'Location','NorthWest');
pos = get (h, 'Position')
set (h, 'Position', pos + [0.1, 0, 0.1, 0])
print ('-depslatexstandalone', '-F:16', 'tstleg')
system ('latex tstleg.tex')
system ('dvips -E tstleg.dvi -o tstleg.eps')

produces a tstleg.eps figure in which the legend is outside the box on the left. In order this to happen, it is necessary to use a seimlogy plot, to use the ylabel and to use the option -F:16 in print. Manually changing the position (set (h, 'Position' ...)) does not help: the legend is pushed to the left when printing.
