Windows never calls Stat on the stream, and it bails out, if Seek
doesn't work, it certainly never reads until the end of the stream.
Thats at least what happens on XP.
This only breaks on jpeg images, so I suspect the difference is in the
actual image rendering code. Wine always reads the complete image into
memory and then creates the image from this memory buffer with
IWICStream_InitializeFromMemory for example, while windows probably
calls IWICStream_InitializeFromIStream. And this method reads a 4096
bytes chunk at first and depends on Read checking for the end of the
