I think that somegraph.pdf is not a legal PDF. According to the
PDF Reference a cropbox has to be specified in a page object and
not in the page tree node as somegraph.pdf does it. Thats why 
the mediabox of the page object (which has letter format) is
used. If I move the cropbox from the page tree node to the page
object, pdftex uses the cropbox as you expected, since the cropbox
has precedence of the mediabox.

I will mail you the corrected somegraph.pdf by PM.
