... and the result is that it now hangs several images later in the
sequence!  It's almost as if some resource is running out.

If I try convert on the 'problem' image it too hangs absolutely
solidly needing a 'kill -9'.

After some experimentation....  OK, it's some sort of file
accessibility problem between the SD card and the computer:-

    Running 'convert 102_PANA/P1020493.JPG /tmp/xyz.png' hangs

    So 'kill -9' the convert

    Run 'cp 102_PANA/P1020493.JPG /tmp/fred' takes several seconds but returns

    Running 'convert 102_PANA/P1020493.JPG /tmp/xyz.png' now works

    My python program that uses jpegtran now also works OK

Wierd!  However it would seem it's not an issue with Python or the
jpegtran module.
