I haven't looked at your stack yet but I just did a quick test with a 
new stack, new group, and a small image inside the group, and I had no 
trouble setting the image location anywhere from the message box, 
including setting it to the loc of the group. Maybe there is something 
else required for it to fail?

My group had 2 buttons and a small image, and the lockloc was set to 
true. The group was the normal default size that encompassed the 2 
buttons which served as "anchors" at the top left and lower right of the 
group.
