I had the same issue with  As far as I can tell, it has to do with the bleed settings.  The default setting is not 0 as one might expect.

In the Export -> Save as PDF -> Pre-Press -> Bleed settings, change to the settings to '0'.

How do I know what the .pdf size is?

Open the pdf file with Adobe reader, and when the file is on the screen, move the cursor to the lower left hand corner, and the size will be displayed.
