Without seeing the code, I can't tell exactly what's causing your problem, but
it sounds like what happens when you don't include height and width parameters
in your image tags.  Any javascript following an image tag that doesn't have
its height and width set is ignored.  I'm assuming this will be resolved by the
next release, but for now, just include the height and width and it should work
