Crash on big jpeg-covers

Thanks for your reply.

I don't know how much this bug is related to #96181. The more I
investigate it, the more it seems to be a bug in iTunes (although it
wouldn't hurt if taglib could still read those files without crashing).

I had a look at the tags with Kid3 and it seems that iTunes incorrectly
set the APIC frame for that picture. That's strange, because it only
happens with jpeg and only with big pictures. So instead of setting the
mimetype to image/jpeg like for all the other pictures, iTunes sets the
picture type to JPG. If recreate the frame with Kid3 everything works
without a problem.
