The file contains two Exif APP1 segments. I would argue that this means the file is invalid, although the Exif standard is not explicit about this.

The first Exif APP1 segment contains the Exif data, the second one is empty. If there are multiple APP1 Exif segments in a file, Exiv2 uses (happens to use...) the data from the last one.

I'll change this to make it use the first one only. That seems to be what other applications do with this image.
