181px images are tipically made when 180px images are "bad", with the

forces a regeneration of the file, solving the issue.
Going up to 65K seems too much, though.

Plus another tiny one at the file history section.
I remember seeing a change about rounding the requested image size some
months ago, so the "request any size" may not be true any longer.
