Summary: Forwarded problem with Test.jpg

Initial Comment:

in de.comp.text.tex Simon Eugster has problems with a
jpg file: http://livingshadow.uttx.net/uploads/Test.jpg

I don't have a JPEG validator, but
don't show any sign of problems with the JPEG file.
Also I could reproduce his problems with pdfTeX

| Error: pdftex (file ./Test.jpg): reading JPEG image
|  ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

Yours sincerely

The test for JFIF file format was not adequate. Please test
the patch. Bear in mind that currently only JFIF files allow
to extract the image resolution values. For all others
either explicitly give the wished dimensions (usual way), or
set \pdfimageresolution. Else you get some default resolution.

The problem went away also after treating Test.jpg (which is
an EXIF file) by jhead -de, as this removed all EXIF headers.

Regards, Hartmut
