I am pretty sure even if you can't see any differences you will be able 
see them when actually calculating the difference between the images 
(can't well do that with your example since it is jpg-compressed).  The 
difference might be small in a lot of cases but with critical settings 
it can be large enough to be visible (in the extreme case you don't do 
any pretrace like Gilles for example did in a lot of cases).
