hey David,

I will some more checking... I triple checked the directory paths to  
the images
folder (I moved the res directory over to fileadmin).

When switch to classic mode all my images show up, when I use modern
then it's nothing, just the white blocks. I did found one bug in the  
pi1 extension
in regards to this, but I did see in SVN that problem was already  

I know about the extension manager often gives the wrong version  
number (happens
often right after installation) and I know for sure I have 0.1.7  

I think I will do some constructive debugging on my dev system :(
I have seen numerous other people with this problem to, so I am nto  
alone :)
