This appears to be an upstream issue. Can you try the latest pre-compiled binary for Linux on the TeX Live svn repo (e.g. http://tug.org/svn/texlive/trunk/Master/bin/x86_64-linux/dvipng or http://tug.org/svn/texlive/trunk/Master/bin/i386-linux/dvipng) and compare the behaviour with the Arch Linux binary? If you encounter the same problem, please ask on the dvipng mailing list (perhaps the discussion http://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/dvipng/2008-10/msg00003.html also may be helpful).

Yes, that binary does it too.

Hooray, another mailing list to sign up for. Posted.
Random thought on policy, maintainers should have to deal with upstream :-)

I found something (see my post on dvipng mailing-list), waiting for upstream to confirm whether this is a bug in the code.

Fixed in 2010.1-3.
