I have no idea, but I do have an alternative...

It should be possible to completely skip the generation of the image and
simply make the bar graph out of HTML and a static image or two.  I think
you'll find numerous advantages by making it html over trying to render the
image server-side--weight, quality, extensibility, etc.

Good luck,
