OK, this should work then...

Blast, I'm sorry I missed this when I did a local build from seed 
earlier. My own sites are not displaying this problem as I am using the 
old directory structure which uses "resources/images".

The workaround for now is to uncomment the following lines in


Set project.images-dir to "${project.xdocs-dir}/images"

Without this you are using the default settings which are set to look in 
resource/images rather than /images. I can't just change the default 
setting as this will break backward compatability.

I've not fully tested this fix, too late and I'm going to bed.

A freshly seeded site seems to buildalmost correctly (there is a missing 
rss.png) and "grep group-logo.gif < 
build/webapp/WEB-INF/logs/sitemap.log" returns nothing so everything 
seems reasoable. Let me know if this works out. It would also be a good 
idea to open a bug so we don't forget this issue as it is very important 
and has to be fixed before the next release..
