I believe this has been introduced by the modification to src/jpgimage.cpp/doWriteMetadata() to handle ICC profiles. I haven't totally understood the variable comPos which determined the chunk index at which to write the comment. The comment is being written to output at the wrong time and thereby corruption the chain of chunks.

Remarkably, this isn't being detected by the test suite. When I fix it, I'll add a regression detector to test/icc-test.sh.
