Hallo Thorsten,

that has not been the problem in my case, but the new suffix-option of  
epstopdf. To restore the old behaviour of \DeclareGraphicsRule, one  
could to load epstopdf like this


or use newcommand{\DoNotLoadEpstopdf}{} before the \documentclass  

But then there is the (old) problem that files might be overwritten  
without intend. I think the new method offered by epstopdf, see  
Heiko's message, is much easier and more transparent.
