Hm, I might be mistaken, but i seem to rememberthis being discused on 
yhe list before (eg a year ago maby) i think someone said then that 
image output was just for previwing or somthing

actually, ive just searched the archive, so can back up my clame that 
image export was ment to be just for a preview

and this bug probably applies to the 1.2.* series
