Ulf, this is the problem - my builds of 0.44 (stable as well as
subversion) do not recognise bitmaps - bitmap images do not show up in
the file saved as a PDF at all, only vector graphics do.
There are two PDF exporters in 0.44; one native which can export
transparency, and one postscript-based which can export bitmaps (and
hopefully a third Cairo-based PDF exporter will be ready for 0.45,
capable of exporting both transparency and bitmaps).
Each exporter has a unique entry in the export list. Just like you see
different SVG exporters (Inkscape, Plain, Compressed, etc) you can see
different Pdf exporters (maybe one is named "Adobe Pdf" and the other
"Portable Document Format"?), but only if they are all enabled. The
postscript-based PDF exporter is *disabled* in 0.44.
Please make sure that you test the right exporter and feel free to
file a bug report if you do.
