again, I've been through this a couple of days ago so I'm happy to  
share my experience with you ;-)

For me the problem was not having installed ImageMagick in the first  
place. But judging from your log this doesn't seem to be the problem.

Let me think ... perhaps your glitch might be related to a funny  
thing I stumbled upon: including a PDF figure with \externalfigure  
resulted in a crazy distortion of the image although I didn't specify  
any height or width arguments (i.e. I didn't override its natural  
dimensions)... Hans, Mojca, do you have any ideas? I'm going to send  
a test file tomorrow ...
