Code changes

Yesterday 14:19 b06073f771: buffering: ensure sufficient buffer size loading bitmaps

Commits 5aa0fc3 and 32f1418 (g#4451, g#4452) changed the amount of space that was allocated for loading bitmaps used to display album art.

Testing revealed that the size of the JPEG decode buffer can reach up to (38 * 1024)B in some cases.

When the limit is reached, additional space is required by the resize_on_load function.
