Ah right, pixbufs, pixmaps ...  In that case why bother preloading
them at all?  eog is flagrant with regards to pixmaps because the
developers believe it allows them to display images quickly (the
images are already on the X server, converted from JPEGs into raw
pixels).  In this age of fast CPUs and slow RAM this is unlikely to be
the case.
