[XeTeX] Inclusion of PDF graphics with XeLaTeX

I had a similar problem with PDFLaTeX when I was including PDFs that were
generated by Adobe Illustrator. The solution in my case was very simple:
when exporting the file from Illustrator, it gives you an option as which
version of PDF you want to save it and I chose 1.4. I don't know about Open
Office, but I think you can set the PDF version in Acrobat Distiller.
Hope this help.
