Sometimes habits come back to bite you! :-) I believe one of the solutions to the problem gave this solution but no explanation.

Sigh... I just realized that there still would have been a problem if

\includegraphics[scale = .9]{swing}

There is another possible issue here, related to where the image is stored.
It better not be in the same directory as your main document,
else it will be clobbered by pdfTeX writing out the current job.

Thus you’ll need a  \graphicspath  entry to find its actual directory.

was used but not if

\includegraphics[scale = .9]{swing.eps}

was used.

PS: I've got my system set up to have the automatic conversion be file.eps->file.pdf so I would have gotten bitten!!! Well, maybe not since I also `prepend' the extension to the list.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
