It only fails on the 'jpg' file types (jpg/jpeg/JPG/JPEG) - but 'jpg' is first in the list.

Works on Oracle JDK 8u31 and with openjdk-7-jdk:

Writing image of format BMP
Writing image of format bmp
Writing image of format jpg
Writing image of format JPG
Writing image of format wbmp
Writing image of format jpeg
Writing image of format png
Writing image of format JPEG
Writing image of format PNG
Writing image of format WBMP
Writing image of format GIF
Writing image of format gif

Looking for initWriterIDs in Oracle JDK8 gives a hit in its bundled libjpeg.so:

stain@biggie-utopic:~/software/jdk1.8.0_31$ grep -r initWriterIDs .
Binary file ./jre/lib/amd64/libjpeg.so matches
Binary file ./jre/lib/rt.jar matches
Binary file ./lib/ct.sym matches

but libjpeg.so is not in /usr/lib//jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64
