Yes I'm having exactly the same problem with a figure included using the 
graphicx package and:

\includegraphics[bb=0 0 380 380]{figurename.pdf}

The figure doesn't show up at all, in either TeXShop, Preview or Acrobat 
Reader 5 (and Mac OS X 10.1). With the previous teTeX, everything was 

If I switch to the TeX + GhostScript route, using the EPS original of 
the figure (from which the PDF version was created), then everything is 
back to normal: I see the figure in my LaTeX document.

If I remove the bb specification and still use pdfTeX, then everything 
is normal again.

Could this be connected to the upgraded pdfTeX in the new teTeX?

On your other topic, converting Illustrator files to PDF, here's what 
works for me: I usually create EPSs from Mathematica 4.1 and open them 
in Illustrator 8 (for adding labels annotations etc.). If I would save 
them as PDFs from Illustrator, then the PDFs would, as for you, have the 
full page size. However, by saving them as EPSs from Illustrator, then 
opening them with MacGSView 2.0b3, and saving them as PDFs at this stage 
only, I get PDFs with the proper size.

At one point I thought it was necessary to use MacGS 5.5 instead of 
MacGSView 2.0b3, but now the latter seems to work quite fine.

Hope this helps,
