Not all viewers trigger the bug, that's right. There surely is a small 
difference in the way the image is shown.

As I wrote in my first post: it's the width of 2047px. You could take 
every picture with that width. The effect gets stronger with more height.

nvidia 275.09.07 (x86_64) on GeForce 8600 GT here. I heard that older 
versions of the nvidia driver should be fine, but had no time to test it
