Yes, I can reproduce this using your example. Seems to happen only to
images larger than real screen estate and looks like some kind of
"palettization" (is that even a word?) error. But I think it's only a
problem of ImageWin, not PIL in general. If you want to simply display
the image, maybe im.show() is an option which will use the default image
viewer of the OS?
