This is a bug is due to a modification made to PIL for Debian and Ubuntu. It has to do with eog being clever about reusing its instances, and im.show() deleting a temporary file too soon. I reported this, but nothing has been done about it: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/python-imaging/+bug/382987

Fixing the problem is easy, but I haven't had time to figure out the process for submitting a patch to Debian/Ubuntu and having it accepted
