I'm using WebKit to render HTML in a plugin of Gedit, the Gnome text
editor. The source code is available from

Now it looks like WebKit is rendering images from remote resources
(e.g. http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2256/2259897373_d47ecf0983_o_d.png)
fine, but local images (e.g. docs/reStPlugin.png) just display as an
empty box. Interestingly, the size of the box corresponds to the real
size of the image, but the image itself is not displayed.

Some details and a screenshot are available from a bug report at

Does this problem sound familiar to someone?

Thanks in advance for any hints,
