thanks for the example; i haven't checked yet (no access to mac atm), 
but i did my only little tests with loading 1024x1024 pixel images on a 
powerpc using the latest and greatest Gem ever (0.92.0), and found me in 
the happy position to be unable to reproduce your problem.

could you please try to upgrade to the newest release of Gem and see 
whether the problem still exists?

it should not as i believe you have stumbled across this (fixed) bug:
