Description of problem:
when asking the convert utility to convert a RAW image into something else,
it hangs instead of returning after a short time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. dd if=/dev/zero of=zaroo bs=1k count=256
2. convert -size 512x512 GRAY:zaroo zaroo.pgm
3. wait and watch the load (and wait forever)
Actual Results: Nothing. Convert just hangs.
Expected Results: Convert should have returned after a short while and
created a file zaroo.pgm
This very basic function was working with previous (RH71) version.
When compiling the ImageMagick package without the fancy configure options
of the redhat spec file, convert does not hang (although it has a bizarre
behaviour: the default image depth for RAW images is 16 bits instead of the
usual 8 bits per pixel). But I did not try a complete reinstall of
ImageMagick compiled with different options.
