yes but... the macros don't appear to be using that option

the log shows

runsystem(repstopdf --outfile=example-image-eps-converted-to.pdf example-image.
epstopdf ($Id: epstopdf.pl 41287 2016-05-28 18:09:45Z karl $) 2.24
!!! Error: Option forbidden in restricted mode: --device
system returned with code 65280
eps)...executed safely (allowed).

so if I read that right, the option isn't used, and repstopdf is
allowed to run but then complains about the option?
