The problem is not in the GWorkspace content (image) inspector, but in NSImageRep.m.
This simple patch can fix it.

The GWorkspace content (image) inspector works on an arbitrary JPEG image with a lower case extension (.jpg).

Rename the file to have an upper case extension (.JPG), and the content inspector still correctly reports the image dimensions in pixels, but displays the following greyed out text "Invalid Contents" instead of the image.

The system is running a CVS version of GNUstep and GWorkspace from 20030813 on NetBSD/i386 1.6.
