I did try your example, compiling with TeXworks (under Windows XP SP3).
I did use a picture to which I added triple black lines in the corners 
to see if everything was on.
The problem is coming from the viewer:
1) with the TeXworks viewer, ok with xelatex and one missing pixel on 
the right side with pdflatex;
2) with PDF-X-Change, there is a one pixel(?) white space on the "right" 
side for xelatex, ok for pdflatex;
3) with Adobe Reader 9, ok for both.

So I would say that xelatex and pdflatex produce the same pdf, except 
for  perhaps a detail in the size of the page.
