Hmm.  Have you ever seen text that has been JPEG compressed?  It isn't
"jaggy."  The letters have little compression artifacts floating around

It is not visible on a 1:1 display in kghostview, but zooming in three
times (300%?) shows it pretty clearly.  On a 1200x1200 dpi printout it
is quite clear.

I went to http://www.isc.tamu.edu/~lewing/linux/, got Tux 2.0
(sit3-shine.7.gif, this is what you actually asked for), opened with the
GIMP,  Image->Mode->Grayscale, saved.

Find it and a shot of the artifacts I am talking about at
