Unfortunately, PIL 1.1.7 final is out, and widely distributed. I'm sure
1.1.8 will eventually have a fix for this, but ReportLab will still
continue to break when combined with the buggy 1.1.7. Just calling
load() in the ReportLab code before calling split() should work fine for
all versions of PIL.
