Strangely enough, I was wondering why you /didn't/ test using the
primitives.  As I lacked your test file, I was unable to do so,
but I would have re-expressed :

\setbox 0 = \hbox {\XeTeXpdffile HEIelements.pdf}
\setbox 2 = \hbox {\XeTeXpdffile HEIelements.pdf page 1}


As it is, you have a lot of intermediate-level LaTeX that
could be screwing things up ...
