Well, file a bug then. And hey, bugs happen, even if people try hard to 
avoid them. Anyhow, this is fixed upstream (see [1]), I'm working on 
updating the packages to the latest pillow 2.0, it's taking me a bit 
longer than I expected since I had to figure out why one of the tests 
did not complete (which turned out to be a gcc4.8 regression).
