If it's not occurring with self-hosted, you'll likely need to take this up 
with Matt (or whomever else/additional is running wp.com...) as I believe 
it's a quite-customized WPMU installation.  You could try a recent WPMU 
build and try to repro.  But in either case, neither wp.com nor WPMU are 
part of this list (someone correct me if I'm wrong! ;) ).

I would have to agree that whitespace should be ignored by any proper 
parser, and I myself add a space when I'm putting self-closing IMG tags in 
html for better legibility (at least to me...).

Hi wp-hackers,
cc: Erwan, Flock blogging current owner

Blog posts sent using the version of Flock in development [1] to
wordpress.com strip images [2]. I am guessing this is not a wp.com
specific issue, and that the latest, developer versions of wp also
exhibit this.

The problem is not exhibited with Wordpress 2.0.2 self hosted.

We have not been able to figure out the cause of the problem, could you 

My guess is it relates to Flock not putting a space before closing the
image tag. The developer writes "that's what's generated by Mozilla's
serializer and I'm pretty sure it's valid XML (and valid XHTML) with
or without the space."
