Graphics.DrawImage breaks with "Parameter is not valid"

Hello

I'm trying to draw a PictureBox with an image of size 40000 x 200 pixels.
Because the image width is larger or equal to 2^15, drawing the image will
crash.

Code snippet:
Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap(40000, 200);
pictureBox1.Image = bmp;

Exception Text:

System.ArgumentException: Parameter is not valid.

width, Int32 height)

I suppose the bitmap ist just too large for GDI. 40000 pixels is quite a
lot.
Maybe you can try to make multiple smaller bitmaps and draw one after
each other.
