Another workaround on linux is pdfcrop infile.pdf outfile.pdf. However, it is very annoying, as with all other formats, checking the "selection" check mark gets rid of the page background. I think a bug report should be filed.

FYI, here a bash script that crops all pdfs in a given directory to remove excessive whitespace:

#!/bin/sh
#Script to crop all pdf files in folder.

x=1; 
for i in *pdf; 
do pdfcrop $i $i;
done
