[NTG-pdftex] pdflatex includegraphics eats newline of stream

Hi!

pdftex is eating the last new-lines in streams included with
includegraphics, when the stream has an extra new-line. Toy example;
an object in the PDF image looks like this:

15 0 obj
<</Length 6>>stream
ABCDF

endstream
endobj

[there are just new-lines at the end of ABCDF and in the next line].
When I include this PDF with includegraphics, the last new-line
disappears, but the stream Length count does not get updated (or
touched at all, as far as I can tell):

15 0 obj
<</Length 6>>stream
ABCDF
endstream
endobj

This produces an error when trying to get PDF/A compliance, which is
strict about stream lengths.

Best,
Florian
