I have bundled up a scribus document with 4 images, 
Your original eps
ImageMagick's tif
Gimp's tif
Gimp's png

If I go to the print preview (view cmyk and I am using cvs 3 Dec), I get perfect separations for all images though the eps now shows a part black border, mind you that black is perfectly separated

After reading the gimp mailing list for a few years, but not from any practical experience, I tend to switch off with tif formats. The big tif below is made from the Gimp, eps->tif and the smaller one is the ImageMagick version
