by default graphicx takes everything after the first . as the extension,
what happens after that is up to the back end driver code. On drivers where
different inclusion \special's are needed for different filetypes then
normally such filenames don't work by default however some drivers
basically treat all file types the same at this level in which case the
extension doesn't matter (This seems to be the case with xetex.def which
has a default rule for any extension)

You can disable the graphicx filename parsing and supply the extension


should load my.file.foo.bar.1 and handle it via is QTM code. If you use the
ext key the graphicx code does not try to split up the filename given in
the second argument.
