Thanks for investigating the issue.

\immediate\pdfximage writes the XObject to the PDF. I don't want to
be forced to write it out at once. \pdfximage and \pdfmdfivesum are
completely unrelated commands and should not interfere at all. Therefore,
I still consider it a bug and hopefully somebody will take care of it.
