Giant (but suddenly blank) XCF
I'm having trouble with this particular file, this was created with GIMP 2.4.xx -- In the same version, and in 2.6, the file opens without any error message -- but it's blank. Nothing shows up, it appears that there aren't even any layers. It's clearly far too large to be blank, and I'm hoping the image can be recovered. It's supposed to be a sheet of circular leaf samples with a set of black boxes in the background.

I've been looking up information on the XCF format and looking at it with a hex editor to see if I might be able to repair the file myself, but if there's someone here who has more experience, I would appreciate some insight.

This is a 25MB file that's 2552 x 3328 pixels, RGB. It's from a scan so it may also be indexed. The file is up on Google Docs:
