The problem presented by the test case is a bug indeed, but Bitmap object are
not expected to be thread safe.

Neither is MS GDI+ thread safe on actual object instances.

When dealing with bitmaps in ASP.NET I usually store them in [ThreadStatic()]
WeakReferences because on MS.NET I experienced very rare exceptions when
drawing a (static) Bitmap to new Bitmap.

Also note that libgdiplus caches images created from streams while MS GDI+
reads the stream every time the image is accessed so I have to create new
Bitmaps from Bitmaps to copy them to memory. libgdiplus in this sense still
much better than MS GDI+.
