That's probably because Cocoon currently ships with FOP0.13 which has a 
different set of image bugs/features/quirks. See the Cocoon FAQ on "how to 
do images with FOP".

Now you might ask "Well why haven't you upgraded it?" The answer is simple - 
only me and Donald and Jeremy are really working on Cocoon 1 at the moment 
(on and off), and I for one (I can't speak for the others) don't know 
whether upgrading the supplied FOP from 0.13 to 0.14 would be an improvement 
or would introduce too many problems. Opinions?
