I apology for the inaccuracy.  I should have read
dvipdfm.def and spc_dvips.c more carefully.  Anyway
I'm glad PDF/EPS inclusion is fixed in xdvipdfmx.

A temporary workaround is to use either PSTricks or
PGF/TikZ.  Either



\clip (4,4) rectangle (12,12);
\node[inner sep=0mm,anchor=south west] at (0,0)

should work.  Of course the proper fix must be made
in xetex.def but I don't know whether xdv2pdf supports
clipping or not.
