The case I'm seeing is when there image and alt is there, but "Display
Images when loaded" has been switched off, so its slightly different to
yours, as I think it something to do with style sheets and z order'ing
maybe, but the screen reader does the right thing. And the strange thing is
some work and some do not.

I was planning on adding one in bugzilla, but won't if its not needed if
that what people want.
