I use pdf includes quite a lot, and I never have to use ebb nor to specify
a bounding box. It might be that the OP's PDF file has too much white space
around [Overfull \hbox (159.5385pt too wide)] or it doesn't have its size
properly inside. Cropping it with the pdfcrop script or manually with
Preview may solve the problem.
