Try this:

%!TEX TS-program = xelatex
%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode
off \\

and look at the result in Reader or Acrobat Professional 7: empty boxes!

Now comment out the line containing the word "off": no more boxes! Or  
replace obstboth6 by obstboth5: no more boxes either!

The problem seems to be triggered by the combination of 3 factors:

- inclusion of the PDF file obstboth6.pdf, converted from EPS using  
GhostScript (as opposed to Apple's Distiller);

- presence of the exact word "off" before the inclusion of the PDF file;

- viewing of XeTeX's PDF output in Reader or Acrobat 7.

Does this mean "off" is incorporated without some form of protection  
inside the PDF stream, and interpreted as a PDF "keyword" by the  
viewer (if that is indeed the appropriate term)?

In any case, and if that is reproducible on your setup, then that  
sounds like a bug, from either XeTeX, GhostScript or Acrobat.

And then: why is it always me, that is faced with such things?
