Thanks !
The previous version used ImageIO indeed. But I never figured how to 
handle PNG metadata with ImageIO -- though I spent a few days at it 
earlier this year, and got out with the feeling that ImageIO and JAI are 
among the most cryptic and ill-documented parts of the Java Platform.
And at this point I need precise control, what I need is really 
PNG-specific and rather tricky BTW.

Never mind, it works well now; though I'm not 100% sure of what I 
changed to make it work.
I'll use it in another place where I have shortly used another open 
source PNG encoder that is probably getting old by now.
But let me say thank you once more.
