Images im front of Chapter title get moved to a new page

I have an ePub that has a image at the top of every chapter followed by the chapter header text. When converting to Mobi, the image becomes separated on a single page for every chapter. I did try heuristic processing and that failed.

Is there any way to fix this or is this a bug in Calibre?

It's most likely that the chapter header is wrapped in an h1 or h2 tag and the 'insert page breaks before' setting (under structure detection) is inserting a page break, as it would per defaults. It sounds like the book already had well defined page breaks, so just delete the setting which inserts them.

I don't know much about mobi format but how about, before you convert, code the epub chapter headings something like:
Code:
<h2 class="whatever"><img src="images/chap1img.jpg" alt="" /><br />Chapter 1</h2>
i.e. join the chapter hdg image & text together with a <br />
