[Image-SIG] Image.open fails when called more than 254 times

Using PIL 1.1.6 and the code...
image = Image.open(filename)
This works well, until the 255th time.  All subsequent calls fail with
IOError.  Is this a bug in PIL? I am trying to load several hundred images
and best fit rectangle pack them so it's best to open them all at once.
