That might be an explanation, because actually, I did cropping with gimp.
But I still don't get it.  For example, one picture was a

  1260x1740 BMP, 6.3 MB size, autozooms correctly.

After cropping, it was a

  713x517 jpeg, 314 KB size, don't autozoom (but see below)

Both files have _no_ exif information at all.

But wait, I just noticed that when I make the window smaller, autozoom
actually works for the cropped picture, too!  But it stops at 100% factor.
The given picture needs about 180% to fill the screen.

So the real question is: how to get autozoom work above 100%?
