I got it and can reproduce the problem. This occurs because the
included picture is cropped (i.e. it has a /CropBox which is
smaller than the /MediaBox) and pdfTeX takes the CropBox as the
dimensions of the picture. This seems to screw up the positioning
of the graphics inclusion.

I will investigate further.

If anybody wants the testcases, mail me.

Best regards

P.S.: This doesn't show up with our internal version because we
      always use the /MediaBox. But that's only correct in our
      special case.
