I can confirm the stated bad behaviour, using:

landau.mpce.mq.edu.au> pdflatex pdftest.tex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-14f-released-20000525 (Web2C 7.3.1)

With the first image block uncommented, the messages are:

loading : Context Support Macros / PDF
) <foo.pdf 100.375pt, 100.375pt, image 1> <use foo.pdf> <use foo.pdf> [1{/usr/u

showing the 2 uses of the same image.

But with the comments in place, so that only one use is expected:

loading : Context Support Macros / PDF
) <use foo.pdf> [1{/usr/users/staff/ross/texdev/LWC/BOOK/texmf/pdftex/config/st

Note that the initial image-loading message is not given.
So the <use foo.pdf> may be trying to use an image that was never loaded.

Here is the source, repeated for convenience:

This is a figure:


\includegraphics[bb= 100 300 200 500]{foo}
