Did you think of cropping the PDF image? There might be some space  
above/below the picture on the PDF *page* ...

The documentation of the epslatex package, ftp://ctan.tug.org/tex- 
archive/info/epslatex.pdf, describes this dimension. The file  
describes how to work with the caption and subfig packages and also  
explains a lot of other dimensions.



Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to  
build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying  
to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
