Bug Description

I'm using a freshly installed Precise on a fairly old computer.

eog: 3.4.1-0ubuntu1
xserver-xorg-video-nouveau: 1:0.0.16+git20111201+b5534a1-1build2

The problem is that eog shows a black stripe in some of my jpg pictures. I think the position of the stripe depends on the resolution of the picture. If the resolution is high the stripe is located close to the top, if it's medium the stripe is in the middle. If the resolution is low then there is no black stripe. Please take a look at the sample images.

I used the printscreen button to create the eog version of the images.
There is no problem with other image viewing tools.

This bug does not happen with the nVidia-173 driver so the problem must be with nouveau. So I've added xserver-xorg-video-nouveau as an affected project.

First I reported this as a Gnome bug on bugzilla.gnome.org but after some investigation it turned out that this problem only occurs with the nouveau driver. There is no problem with the official nVidia (173) driver.

dmesg: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/attachment.cgi?id=219398
sudo lspci -vvnn: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/attachment.cgi?id=219399

Error message can be seen in the nouveau Xorg.0.log:

Does this still happen with newer versions of the kernel/xf86-video-nouveau?

No response to re-test request in over a month. Closing as invalid.
