For the first time I run into the following error message when trying 
to include a pdf figure in pdflatex:

Error: /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/pdflatex (file 
): pdf inclusion: found pdf version <1.5>, but at most version <1.4> 
  ==> Fatal error occurred, the output PDF file is not finished!

The figure in question is a pdf produced by a scanner. The pdf is 
opened without complains by TeXshop and by Preview.  Interestingly, 
after I manually edited the first line of the pdf to read %PDF-1.4, it 
was processed by pdflatex without complains. Is there a conflict of 
versions between tetex and pdf?
