Dear Olivier,

My thanks for your help, but I'm afraid the problem hasn't become clearer.

It seems there is a "smart" program which is distorting the data. I 
don't see <Ctrl>M (0x0d byte) in my c1.pdf passed through roottalk 
mailing list. I tried to save the file through IMAP with mozilla and 
through the web interface of my mail server. The result was identical. 
The file downloaded from the roottalk archive has one additional byte 0x0a.

I found
pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-14h-released-20010417 (Web2C
pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-0.12h (Web2C 7.2)
in the our Zoo. Their behavior is different but they both don't succeed 
in inclusion of your c1.pdf.

Finally I got the file compiled with
pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-13d (Web2C 7.3.1)
Now I agree that ROOT PDF files can be included into documents produced 
by pdflatex. Probable I'll tell the story to pdflatex developers, but
now I think ROOT EPS is better.

Yours faithfully,
Maxim Nikulin
