[Pkg-gmagick-im-team] Bug#721508: imagemagick: import only captures sub-rectangle without explict -limit parameter

Package: imagemagick
Version: 8:
Severity: normal

I tried to capture an image using my usual
$ import myfile.jpg
  selecting a rectangle with mouse in the usual way.

The captured image was only the right side of the selected area.
Repeated attempts captured varying sub rectangles, typically with a file
size of 28K or 31K.  Eventually I tried with
$ import -limit Memory 1GB myfile.jpg
  and this time the whole selected area was captured. The size of the
  resulting file was 62K (62764 bytes).

It was almost as if there was some small default undocumented value for -limit?
