It appears that the automatic inclusion of epstopdf can cause problems
when using pst-pdf.
Compile the enclosed file (the example from pst-pdf) with latex (to
create the file containing the cropped graphics). Rename that file pst-
pdf-example-pics.pdf (i.e., append `-pics' to the base name). Then run
pdflatex on the original file. Under TL2008 it all works very well
while there is an error stop with TL2009.
Download the file pst-pdf-example.zip from <http:/homepage.mac.com/
