Description of problem:
gThumb can't read the JPEG file comment. I've created several JPEG files via "pnmtojpeg" and i'm using the -comment parameter to add a string of text.
The comment is viewable by the "file" command:
$ file ole.jpg
ole.jpg: JPEG image data, JFIF standard 1.01, comment: "Copyright (c) MYSELF\377\333"
The comment is also viewable by the GIMP.
Unfortunately, gThumb doesn't display anything in the "comment" field while viewing the image, neither does it show the comment when i select the Properties and go to the "Comment" tab.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take any image, for example image.bmp.
2. cat image.bmp | anytopnm | pnmtojpeg -comment="this is a comment" > newimage.jpg
3. View the newimage.jpg with gThumb.
4. Confirm that there is no comment displayed.
Actual Results: No comment displayed in gThumb.
Expected Results: A comment string should be displayed.
