      Description

      Some PDFs have atypical media/crop boxes, and this seems to cause the OverlayPDF command in pdfbox-app to produce unexpected results.

      To reproduce:

      wget https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/sites/default/files/W-9_0.pdf
      wget http://stepheneisenhauer.com/files/CenterLines.pdf
      java -jar pdfbox-app-2.0.1.jar OverlayPDF W-9_0.pdf out.pdf
      

      In this example, W-9_0.pdf has the unusual traits (when opened in Inkscape, objects outside the media box can be seen), and CenterLines.pdf is just a normal PDF with lines centered on the page. Both pages have the same media size, yet out.pdf shows the lines shifted (though they are still their original size).
