Ah, this is the difference between "thumbnail" and "view image as
itself". Files that are really small are not thumbnailed, they are just
loaded, and viewed in their regular size (i think, or at least smaller).
This typically happens to be icon files, which is why this was
introduced. Anyway, scaling them up to the size of thumbnails probably
won't look good. 

Of course, using the file size as an indicator of image resolution isn't
perfect and sometimes fails.
