The command pdflatex(1) from TeXLive 2003 works as expected on Linux

$ cat article.tex
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.
Duis autem vel eum iriure dolor in hendrerit.
$ ls
article.tex utc.png
$ file utc.png
utc.png: PNG image data, 400 x 250, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced

but the pdflatex(1) from TeXLive 2004 goes awry:

$ pdflatex article

We have libpng 1.2.5.

I can't see any mention of this problem in the tex-live mail archive,
nor in the introductory documentation live.pdf ("The TeX Live Guide,
TeX-Collection 2004", November 2004).
