Bug#855561: eog: opening a 15MB jpeg in EOG uses up over 1.3GB of memory

EOG takes up a lot of memory when opening single files. A 5MB jpeg could take
up 400MB of memory when opening. A 15MB jpeg takes over 1.3GB memory to open
(often spilling onto swap and bringing my laptop almosts to a hault). Opening
large PNGs in EOG creates the same excesive memeory usage problem.
I have tried opening these same pics in other software an non create any issues
-- they all open fine in Firefox, Chromium, GIMP, sushi, and Gnome Photos
without taking up excessive memory.
This problem started recently, but I can't figure out what packages might have
changed to create this problem.
Let me know if there's other info I can get you.
