Sigh. We've had this discussion a couple of years ago already and 
nothing has changed since. So let me repeat what I explained to you back 
then: If you want to ensure that you can load an image in secured mode, 
you cannot wait until that image voluntarily loads the plugin (because 
it never will). You *have* to initialize the plugin automatically and 
you *have* to do that before the image is even loaded.
