pdfcrop can't change the thickness of lines -- it's just an  
invocation of pdftex with arguments that set a paper size of the  
bounding box' size, which has been retrieved from the EPS file  
before. Try 'pdfcrop --debug' on a file: it will leave the produced  
TeX and LOG files! ps2pdf14 is the same 'mechanism' as used in  
epstopdf ...
