before you export it do the following:
A1a: Draw a rectangle around the picture use a white background and
no outlines for the rectangle. This is for the bounding box of the EPS file.
If you are using GIFs you do not need to do this.
A1b: Set the pagesize to the same size as the white rectangle (or the GIF). 
Corel will use the pagesize for the PDF.

Because thats what CorelDraw is doing by default. I think in CorelDraw 8 
there is no other option. In CorelDraw 9 if you choose "PDF publishing" there 
is a option "Exportarea"->"Selection" try this, it should only export the 
graphic object.
