Google suggests that it's a Wang-specific tag, but some info seems to
hint that it should load anyway.

This gives a possible clue as to the problem:


You could give Imagemagick a go (www.imagemagick.org) - it's pretty darn
good for manipulating and converting stuff. Only caveat being that it
doesn't handle high-resolution low-bpp images well at all (it treats
everything as 32 bit internally, so it gets really inefficient for such
