Phil,

Returning to this.

While I understand your reluctance to patch upstream code, let me point 
out that we have not updated libjpeg a single time since the JDK was 
open sourced. We're using 6b from 27-Mar-1998. I had a look at the 
Wikipedia page on libjpeg, and this is the latest "uncontroversial" 
version of the source. Versions 7 and up have proprietary extensions, 
which in turn has resulted in multiple forks of libjpeg. As it stands, 
it seems unlikely that we will ever replace libjpeg 6b with a simple 
upgrade from upstream.

I therefore maintain my position that a source code fix would be the 
best way forward here.
