Adobe Reader 6.0.2 tells: Invalid color: colored pattern specified
with uncolored pattern colorspace.
Using convert from ImageMagick 6.4.1 to convert your PDF file to JPEG

Looking into the PDF file I see that the bitmap comes inside a Flate
encoded stream, which ends with the command endstream. I don't think
this is correct, at least I've never seen a PDF file where the finish
statement was part of the data, i.e., it was always on a separate
line. Editing the PDF file in GNU Emacs by moving the endstream
command to a single line does not create a valid PDF file.
It worked to convert (save as) slu.pdf in Preview a PNG file. Convert
could convert it into another PDF file which XeTeX could include and
create a PDF output file.
It even worked to save slu.pdf as PDF with a new name from Preview –
although it's now "upgraded" to PDF 1.3 ... but it works for XeTeX!
