[pdftex] pdftricks problem in \parbox?

I tried to wrap a \begin{pdfpic} ... \end{pdfpic} in a \parbox (or even  
an \fbox}, but I get an error (see below).  Also, the example-fig1.tex  
file is empty.

How do I get around this?

An example of what I want to do is below.

I'm using pdftricks 1.15
\Fileversion$Revision: 1.15 $
\Filedate$Date: 2001/09/30 11:21:23 $
(I just downloaded it a few days ago, from  

and pdflatex, latex
This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (Web2C 7.4.5)
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-1.10b (Web2C 7.4.5)

In fact, I'm using TeXShop and Gerben Wierda's TeXLive distribution.

  \item text1

    \rput(1,4){ \rnode{SC}{S/C} }
