Are you getting the pictures from HSLFSlideShow, or from individual 

Quite often, powerpoint will leave behind old records when you do a save. 
So, it's not impossible that when you "delete" some images, all that'll 
happen is the slide -> picture reference is deleted. The pictures could 
well remain in the pictures stream until powerpoint feels like doing a 
full resave

As Yegor said, if you could upload the problem PPT file, and your code to 
bugzilla, that'll help us look into it
