[pdftex] clipping included pdf

I have something like the following latex document

	text text and more text; for at least half a page

	\includegraphics[trim 0 0 0 50mm, clip]{foo}
	more and more text

I have a file foo.eps, and file foo.pdf created by epstopdf.

With latex (and xdvi), the figure is cropped and the text is visible.

With pdflatex (and acroread), the figure is not cropped and overwrites
the text.

Is this a known bug?
Is there anything I can do to solve this, other than editting foo.eps?

% pdflatex --version
pdfTeX (Web2C 7.3.1) 3.14159-0.14d
kpathsea version 3.3.1
