I've read the report, and am unclear on Tuv's last comment there:

   verified but is not a bug. It needs to add an extra space
   to use as a placeholder for the image and sets the
   imagesource of that space.

I had the impression you were reporting an additional space beyond the 
one needed for the image, is that correct?
