Hi there,
I'm currently using LR 4.0 and found a problem with file export.

I have two tiff files:
Tiff 1: 283MB, full resolution ( 2336 x 3504 )
Tiff 2: 233MB, full resolution ( 2336 x 3504 )

Export witht: 574 x 1000 image width
JPG 1: 168kb
JPG 2: 194kb

Both jpegs have 600px x 887px (574 + frame with mogrify plugin) and 100%jpg quality.
That's completly okay.

When I now set a limit to file size of 154kb, I receive following files:
JPG 1: 102kb
JPG 2: with error ( couldn't create jpg which fit's the file size limit of 154kb )
But why?

If I export the tiffs manually with 90% jpg quality and no max file size definition, I get files with following size:
JPG 1: 114kb
JPG 2: 135kb

So it seems that the "limit file size" isn't working correctly.
Anyone have seen this?

I can also reproduce this is 4.1 RC2
