you need to modify pdfpage{width,height} too, or it will be clipped.

yes. graphicx.tex declares dvips as the default driver, I have this in
the graphics.cfg  used by pdftex:

\DeclareOption{pdftex}{\def\Gin at driver{pdftex.def}}
\def\Gin at driver{pdftex.def}

(i suspect that the latex stuff is ignored, and solely the brute force
\def makes graphicx.tex switch to pdftex option)
