well not on my Ubuntu system. I include the picture like this:

\begin{center}
\includegraphics[width=10cm]{dia}
\end{center}

where dia is dia.pdf and dia.eps in the same dir as my .tex file. When I
choose to genereate a PDF file from emacs:
Command -> Texing Options -> PDF mode

the image is gone in the PDF file that is generated.

If I instead use dvipdfm it works fine, so it could be very nice to make
emacs use dvipdfm instead of pdflatex.
