An update on this: I figured out that the problem is *only* with GIF
images. It happens 100% of the time with GIFs, and zero with other image
files. And it happens on every site on my hosting account. A colleague
suggested that I ask my host if they could check on the configuration of
the GD Library, which could cause something like this, he says. I've asked,
so will see what they say.
Thanks again, all - I'll let you know if I figure this out.
