(I've had to make several attempts to post this. I sincerely hope only one
of them succeeded. :-)

Sure. Assuming I didn't make some stupid mistake, in this particular case I

   surface->w                          = 225
   surface->pitch                      = 676
   png_get_rowbytes(png_ptr, info_ptr) = 675

I tried converting the image to another format and back to PNG again, but
although I got different values the error remained.

Poking around my hard disk I found a number of other PNGs with similar
problems. In the source tarball for Sawmill 0.26 (which you can get at
http://sawmill.sourceforge.net, at least until the upcoming change of name),
for instance, all the PNGs for the "gradient", "gtk" and "simple" themes

   surface->w                          = 15
   surface->pitch                      = 48
   png_get_rowbytes(png_ptr, info_ptr) = 45

and in the "microGUI" theme t_close_active.png, t_close_clicked.png and
t_close_normal.png have

   surface->w                          = 18
   surface->pitch                      = 56
   png_get_rowbytes(png_ptr, info_ptr) = 54

In all the problem cases I saw surface->pitch and png_get_rowbytes( ... )
were close to, but not quite, equal.
