The above code (precise details changed to anonymise data)) fails to load, and results in DW failing to load at all (browser reports page not found). I think I have isolated the critical failure point to the "\`" bit. That is an entry in my local entities conf file (I use it to generate a non-breaking space). It creates no issues within body text, but it seems the image handler does not like this. I can easily work around it, but it was surprising to find this broken, as I know it worked in older versions of DW.
