Please note, that with imagemagick you whole script becomes this

find directory -name "*.jpg" -o -name "*.jpeg" -o ... | 
   xargs mogrify -geometry "100x100!"

This is most probably because the gimp cannot load the file (your script
seems correct). Try to put

Gimp::set_trace(-1);    # before the call the jpeg_load
Gimp::set_trace(0);     # after the call

in your script(*). This will dump all arguments to the gimp_jpeg_load function
to the screen. Most probably the path you think is given to jpeg_load is not
really the path jpeg_load actually gets.

(*) of course, a simple print "$image_name\n" would suffice in this example,
but the trace functions are much more general.
