I located the problem. konqueror isn't the only program affected.


You can put my patch in the SF ticket in 
/usr/ports/graphics/giflib/files/ to test it.

I'll wait some days to see if there's an upstream fix before submitting 
a FreeBSD bugzilla ticket.

The gvpart workaround I mentioned previously doesn't really work BTW. 
Some GIFs just worked by chance after konqueror restart.
