I figured out how to install ImageMagick on my shared web server - 
actually, the support team at 1&1 provided instructions at 
.  Aside from a warning that the '--without-ttf' option was not valid 
(running ImageMagick 6.3.7) and tons of configuration/make warnings, the 
install went smoothly.  After enabling ImageMagick support in 
LocalSettings.php, my thumbnail problems have disappeared.  I have not 
tested to see where ImageMagick runs out of memory - the largest image I 
had on hand was 2400 x 3000 pixels, 24-bit color.  Supposedly, the 
uncompressed size is 20.1MB.
