Mixed up artwork in mobi on PB360 Feader

OK, that was supposed to be PB360 FBReader (damn back button)


For historical reasons, I have most of my books in mobi format, no drm. I'm using the FBreader on my pb360, and I've had the fb180 mod installed for a long time (although I've stopped bothering with the g-sensor page turns).

I have a number of books from Baen, the Grantville Gazette series. They contain a bunch of artwork, at least one piece of art for each story, usually more. When I look at the file using Calibre's internal viewer, the art looks correct. When I look at the file on my pb360, the artwork is jumbled. There's *something* at the correct place, but it almost always references a different piece than intended. For ex, the cover doesn't display, something else does and the cover displays in the middle of a story. Tables (for non-fiction articles) also display in the wrong place.

I haven't bothered about this before, but I just happened to buy another couple, and noticed that they were NOT messed up if I looked at them in the internal viewer. I can read the stories, it's just a bit jarring to have the wrong artwork display.

Any thoughts on what's wrong?
