Update, I also see anything but the picture when the bug occurs,
namely random garbage. I can confirm that feh, launched the regular
way does not trigger the bug, although, also I have to confirm that
display (imagemagick- actually does trigger the bug.
Actually my guess is feh restricts itself to become larger than the
screen's resolution (which is smaller than 2047 here) and thus is just
not storing the full resolution image in video memory. I just managed
to something like trigger the bug, X hang for about 4 seconds here and
will display some garbage, with

$ feh --geometry 2047x1529 nvbugy7cd.jpg

heh, after trying this several times, the hang disappears. Might this
be related to caching?
