Bug Description

eog fails to open PNG file. After about 25 seconds, it gives up and says:

Failed to register: Timeout was reached

You can find the relevant image at:


Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS, GNOME Image Viewer 3.18.2.

I expect it to display the image. Instead it fails with the above message.

Image Magicks "display" utility shows the image fine.
