I suspect you've run into the limitations of PDFTeX in handling included
graphics.  PDFTeX
deals with a much more limited set of graphic file types/formats than
you might expect if you're
used to dealing with dvips.  In particular, IIRC, it doesn't deal with
much of anything except
PNGs without some serious effort -- and I believe that includes PS based
formats such as EPS.
