Select the pics in the iPhoto Window and go File -> Export and set the Kind: Original
This will export the files in their original form - in this case the RAWs from your 40D.
Background: Drag and drop gets the current version of your Photo. In the case of these RAWs, the current version is a jpeg because when you import a RAW iPhoto creates a jpeg version for faster display.
Yes, iPhoto has a RAW converter, it's the same one Aperture uses but with less options. The options are available under the Adjust button in Editing Mode
2. If I shoot in Raw and import into iPhoto then convert to, say, TIFF, does iPhoto have two image files, one RAW, one TIFF?
Yes because iPhoto always preserves your Original file, no matter what. So, if you save it as a jpeg you also have two image files...
