It's strange, because I compiled both latest GRASS and QGIS releases with 
jpeg support enabled.
I made some tests loading WMF layers, and it works fine.
I loaded a DM Solutions GMap layer selecting the JPEG coding as showed here:

and it has been showed correctly 
(http://www.webalice.it/marco.pasetti/qgis/Immagine02.png)

...or probably I'm missing something, I'm actually not used to work with WMS 
layers...

Regards,

Marco
