Hi James,

well, such a black bar is a wonderful large (opaque) logo. using the (not 
yet completely working) code which I recently submitted for comments, this 
will be automagically flagged. However, since this "logo" is very large, 
the flagging will be rather slow. I will have a look to speed this up in 
this particular case. (i.e. by just limiting the size of a logo)
