Yes, it seems to have been compiled with imagemagick support.
I don't have 14Gb of ram :-)
So, the problem is then that this is not any kind of image. It's a text file (actually a
program for http://art.kano.me, which expects coffeescript). If I run:
convert Identify nelson.art
imagemagick tells me that I have a 26708x29472 1-bit ART image, which explains the problem!
It loads normally if I rename the file not to have the .art suffix. So I can solve my immediate problem.
It's not clear to me whether imagemagick is making a real mistake here. it doesn't seem
However these old formats often didn't include any redundancy anyway.
However it does seem like any filename ending in .art is a bit dangerous for emacs at the moment.

Alex, was your Emacs compiled with Imagemagick support? Mine wasn't,
so visiting that file does nothing special.
