    Hello Eugene,
    Thanks for the hint, I have done the same (in fact cross compilation of
    libjpeg using sources and patches from mingw32-libjpeg-7.2.rpm + 
    partial recompilation of webkit to be linked with the proper libjpeg-7.dll) 
    and was able to open http://arabic.cnn.com without crash.
    I still detect random crashes on pages with png images but haven't tried 
    to debug since I just test my program with wine.
