Actually this looks like a bug; we don't initialize
self._filters in __init__, and it seems that you have found
a way to initialize a PDFImageXObject without calling
one of the 3 methods we use to create them.
The line "self.filter = PDFName('ASCII85Decode')"
in __init__ looks unnecessary and should be initializing
an empty array of filters. Will try to fix this today. 

I'd like to see a full runnable example with the GIF 
it if possible...
