If you haven't already tried this, opening the SLA document in a text  
editor like vi or emacs or pico should allow you to edit the path for  
the placed images. The document format is fairly easy to decipher and  
you should find your paths to correct them to the current location.  
Although this isn't a fix for the issue it should recover your file.
