[pdftex] teteX on macosx: /Rotate fixed?

i used to work with the teteX implementation of pdflatex (i guess 14h)
provided by gerben wierda for the mac os x platform. pdf pictures
rotated in acrobat did not show up rotated in the output as the /Rotate
pdf command was not honored.

i read in this newsgroup that a fix to this problem was provided in may.
so, i downloaded the latest teteX (pretest 20010806, released 11/01).
the rotation is now handeled correctly, however the baseline of the
picture is now shifted half an inch downwards, so the picture partially

is this another bug, is there a way to fix it without waiting for a new
build of teteX.

ps, is there any useful tool in os x that allows rotating and cropping
of pdf files? acrobat is not very stable, graphicsconverter does not
support pdf ...

many thanks,
