Hello Indrek,

I think your patch looks nice, but needs to split into two or more parts.
This means one for invalid GRPICONDIRENTRY issue and one for PNG entry's
If you do this, it will be easier to read and easier to pass. For
details, please read our Patch Submission Guidelines[1], especially Code
Guidelines section.
