+Summary: Image.FromFile gives ambiguous exception
+Image.FromFile has clearly been implemented, for when I do:
+Image msn = Image.FromFile("msn_icon.png");
+It works fine.  However, if I pass a path to a file from which an image
+cannot be loaded, for example, a plain text file:
+Image msn = Image.FromFile("/home/scottell/Desktop/test");
+I get the following exception:
+Unhandled Exception: System.NotImplementedException: Feature not implemented.
+in <0x0020c> System.Drawing.GDIPlus:CheckStatus (Status status)
+in <0x0005d> System.Drawing.Image:FromFile (System.String filename, Boolean
+in <0x0000c> System.Drawing.Image:FromFile (System.String filename)
+in <0x000fa> DrawMe:Main (System.String[] argv)
+I would expect that exception if the FromFile method not implemented.  Not
+when I pass a bad parameter.
