Some plug-ins (for example PSD) are implemented quite badly and
allocate a block of memory large enough to hold the full data of the
uncompressed layer. But as far as I know, the JPEG plug-in does it the
right way and only allocates relatively few memory. There could
however very well be a bug in the implementation.
