Thanks for this, Akira.
Yes, unfortunately it does affect xdv2pdf, because that driver
assumes zero-based bounds and handles the offset for different PDF
boxes itself. But I think it is cleaner to use the true bounds, and
so I have applied this change (in a slightly modified version), and
adjusted xdv2pdf so that it matches the xdvipdfmx behavior in this case.
In my (very limited) testing so far, it looks OK. If some "early
adopters" (especially OS X users who can run both xdv2pdf and
xdvipdfmx and compare results) care to update to the latest code from
Subversion, and check that the various cases of image and PDF
placement are handled consistently, that would be appreciated.
