It's smart object fun day it seems....only not the fun part.
I've got an EPS of a logo bound in a square box with a solid yellow colour right upto the the edge..I place as a smart object in a document in PS CS2 and when I zoom right up on my layer's square edge it has a pixel of semi transparent yellow on the left and right edges...not a massive problem as it is, but if I make a matte of the layer's alpha channel and then our editor composites that back over a yellow background in the edit suite I have nasty grey edges on the left and right on the layer.
Anyone know why this might be?
I stick everything down on black and then a separate matte and the editor is using an additive input chroma key, so all black should be taken away, but it ain't with smart objects. I know I could manually fix all these - but that really cuts into my workflow. I use smart objects to keep these editable and rescalable, but this is a big problem for me.

Have you had any luck with this?
I've reproduced your described error by creating a layer with no fill or stroke underneath the yellow layer and slightly oversizing it horizontally (in the EPS). Maybe there's a transparent object underneath the yellow layer, and they're not the same size or proportion. Can you inspect the file in Illustrator?
You might also be able to put two smart objects in the PSD - The logo, and an additional smart object of the same yellow underneath.
