I have spent many hours on this problem and have come up with a work 
around using openJade.

As far as I can tell the bad images were created with snapshot 
(ksnapshot?) on Linux.  The only difference between the "good" and 
"bad" pngs is that the ones have bounding boxes with 0,0 origins and 
the bad ones don't.  I have tracked the problems to passiveTeX where 
it has been reported since 2000.  However when I use xmlto fo, fop 
also has a problem with the pngs.

Can anyone confirm my analysis.
