This bug is a show blocker for web apps which have to manage lot of images like a map app.
The only workaround yet is creating a hidden frame for each and every image to be able to cacnel the image loading by calling frame.stop()

The other side of the coin: This workaround causes a heavy memory foor print  :-(

Please, let the Image object behave like in all other browsers:
If the source has been changed the current http request is canceled and the already loaded part of the image is cached as "partial" 
If later on the previous image resource is requested again then utilize http "Content-Range" to load the rest of the resource
