Oh, I was myself very puzzled by this one but after applying your patch
I can confirm that it works much better (and interesting enough, faster
for small images, well, of course, slower for bigger ones)

Which makes you a perfect candidate for another "real-life howto" of the
series that Sergio is going to start this weekend. If you find a few
hours and the will to do it, we would all be very grateful. You know,
those things are *very* useful when you have to go to your boss and say
"let's use this stuff" and they say "Cocoon? how much does it cost?" and
you say "it's free and it's very powerful".

All the usual management crap. Interesting enough, with
sort-of-recession hitting the world, commercial software ramps up
compared to OSS one due to this "lack of security" that everybody seems
to breath in the air. So, having documents that prove with numbers and
commercial test cases (expecially if connected to well-known commercial
products like Documentum) are going to be unbeatable as a way to change
your boss' mind when he wants to go .NET and you picture yourself
submerged with VB.NET books and plagued by MS-certified consultants.

Think about it, people, each one of us might be the very next.
