I can't imagine why it wouldn't work. The only thing I can think of is
that maybe you are using a high ASCII character as an imagesource
placeholder. When those characters are transfered to Windows, the engine
replaces the character set to the equivalent Windows mappings. I don't
know how the engine tracks these things, but it may be that if the
character is different, imagesource will no longer be recognized. Try
using a space as the imagesource character and see if that works.
I could be way off base, it is just the only thing I can think of.
