As usual ( :-( ) I don't understand.

(a) I'm not (directly) using psfig (at least not the epsfig package).  I 
use the graphicx package, and invoke \includegraphics, not \psfig.

(b) I don't seem to have trouble with other LaTeX files that I process,
where figures are involved.  (The problem just seems to arise when the
powerdot document class is used.)

Can you please clarify?  Ta.
