[Image-SIG] Problem with JPEG and CMYK color space

Even Internet Explorer doesn't support CMYK JPEG images - it's not 
surprising FireFox can't display them either.  You'll have to download the 
files and use something like Photoshop to view them.

That's half the problem with verifying this patch... not many programs can 
work with CMYK, it's not something the home user usually deals with.

THanks for trying though,

I haven't done an exhaustive test, but so far every graphic on
http://www.bernispa.com/pil/index.html that I've examined gives me a
Firefox error:

  The image “http://www.bernispa.com/pil/original-img/test01.jpg” cannot
be displayed, because it contains errors.
