When I use article instead of minimal I get from pdfinfo:

	Creator:        TeX
	Producer:       pdfTeX-1.40.10
	CreationDate:   Sun Aug 30 10:44:22 2009
	ModDate:        Sun Aug 30 10:44:22 2009
	Tagged:         no
	Pages:          1
	Encrypted:      no
	Page size:      792 x 612 pts (letter)
	File size:      11293 bytes
	Optimized:      no
	PDF version:    1.4

although I have set ISO A4 format as default paper size for all sorts  
of TeX and TeX output files. Why is geometry not following this setting?

         The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated
         than by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere,
         bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
