Maplex at 10.1 creates overset text when exporting to .ai

I've been using Arcview 10.0 with the maplex extension to export maps into Adobe Illustrator (CS4). I deal mainly with line features, and use a curved offset type label with the standard aerial font.  After upgrading to ArcGIS Basic 10.1 with the built in Maplex, I'm getting overset text in my exported .ai/.pdf files (with the little red crosses and letters missing from my labels). 

I've played with all the settings in Maplex, but can't figure out a solution. Any suggestions before I move back to 10.0?
