Just found a jpeg-file that someone added a few days ago: 186K resolution
2700 × 848 pixel. I can send it if you want to test with it.
Only the page where the image should be shown (as a thumbnail (or just
"smaller" than real)) break and give the fatal error.
The rest of the wiki works perfectly...
