A few days ago, I posted this silly puzzle:

I'm writing a paper, swing.tex. I drew a nice illustration in 
Illustrator, swing.eps, converted it with TeXShop to pdf. It is included 
in the tex file with

\centerline{\includegraphics[scale = .9]{swing}}
\caption{Illustrating a swing}\label{F:swingillustration}

Cannot typeset the file. Silly puzle: why?

To my surprise, nobody had the obvious answer. So now I am giving it 
away with the log file:

Error: Couldn't read xref table
Syntax Warning: PDF file is damaged - attempting to reconstruct xref 
Syntax Error: Couldn't find trailer dictionary
Syntax Error: Couldn't read xref table

Does this help?
