Look up \DeclareGraphicsRule which is how one teaches the graphicx  
package about extensions --- it tries hard to be smart / safe /  
sensible, which causes the behaviour you describe.

I think the command you want is \DeclareGraphicsRule{*}{pdf}, which  
then has any unknown extension treated as a .pdf.
