Well yes that's valid for the one with the small white squares on the
black, so lets disregard that example for now.
But consider a small image with alternating lines of black and white
pixels ("stripes fine" pattern), it should blur to mid gray
(128,128,128) because that is the average of all its pixels, however
instead it blurs to pure black (0,0,0). The image has an even number
of black and white pixels, why should it blur to black and not white?

Hmm sorry if I knew how to code I would have tried to fix it already. :P
And sorry for the blank email. :)
