Description of problem:
running pdftex on a tex file creates a document with paper size 250x350mm (pdfeTeX-1.21a), with FC3 (pdfTeX-1.10b) the paper size was 210x297mm (A4) as is correct for me (EU).
To solve the problem I had to add by hand in my tex file the following lines
\pdfpagewidth=210 true mm
\pdfpageheight=297 true mm
most probably related to configuration files not set/read properly.
pdflatex works fine.
