Better error presentation for high res PDFs


The PDF in the URL does not generate any thumbnails.

The error is: "Error creating thumbnail: /usr/local/apache/common/wmf-deployment/bin/ line 4: 22515 Done 'gs' -sDEVICE=jpeg -sOutputFile=- -dFirstPage=1 -dLastPage=1 -r150 -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -q '/mnt/upload6/wikipedia/commons/8/8b/Dührings_Haß.pdf'

It would probably be better if that could be presented somewhat like the PNG/GIF limits on images, so that users have readable feedback.
