A recent bug/reversion in the openjpeg library caused several hundred of the images in the CDSA to.. turn black. Basically when the library tried to read the images, it crashed resulting in blank images. Thanks to the help of future Dr. Cobb and Benjamin Gilbert, I think I figured out how to downgrade my openjpeg library to a previous version without the new bug.
Steps are as follows for Ubuntu 12.04 LT
The workaround for now is to downgrade to *libopenjpeg2, version 1.3+dfsg-4.6ubuntu2*, which obviously is just available from the Ubuntu Saucy repository . This solved the problem for me on Debian and Ubuntu.
$ dpkg -s <packagename> | grep Version
dpkg -s libopenjpeg2 | grep Version
Version: 1.3+dfsg-4+squeeze2build0.12.04.1 ##is what I currently have installed— and is causing issues
dgutman@node15:~$ apt-cache showpkg libopenjpeg2
1.3+dfsg-4+squeeze2build0.12.04.1 (/var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_precise-updates_universe_binary-amd64_Packages) (/var/lib/apt/lists/security.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_precise-security_universe_binary-amd64_Packages) (/var/lib/dpkg/status)
### the 1.3+dfsg-4 is the version I want
sudo apt-get install libopenjpeg2=1.3+dfsg-4
