I don't know what's wrong, but since no one else has answered, I'll try 
anyway. :) What I'd do to track this down is to capture the file name of 
the image as it occurs in your script (for example, from the variable 
watcher,) and then see if you can use that file name in a simple button 
handler or from the message box to successfully load an image into an 
image object. I'm thinking the grey color is an image that may not be 
loading correctly. It's all I can think of to try, at any rate.
