Package: imagemagick-6.q16
Version: 8:
File: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ImageMagick-6.8.5/bin-Q16/import

import -delay 33 x.png
is broken. The crosshairs appear immediately anyway.

There is a workaround!
sleep 33; import x.png
or better yet
(sleep 33; import x.png)
which stops via ^C.

Also on the import man page
         -delay value         display the next image after pausing
is wrong. We are importing.
