[XeTeX] XeTeX/xdvipdfmx or the driver bug with eps images

Hi list

It seems that xelatex has problems including eps images; please see the
attached example and the provided eps image.

latex+dvips+pstopdf: image is included inside the \fbox

xetex recent versions: image is outside of \fbox

xetex old versions: (the one coded by Jonathan Kew): ok, image is included
inside \fbox.

w.eps is taken from LaTeX graphics companion examples; therefore I do not
think there is anything wrong with the image itself.

What is wrong?

I also have experienced some strange problems with recent versions of
xetex; include an image in a document on Windows and the result is
perfectly fine but you try to compile the same document on a different
operating system, then images are placed strangely (i.e. the image width
exceeds the textwidth and is placed on the right or left hand side). This
issue is very annoying and existed for few years now. I try to send some
minimal example for this later today.
