[wp-hackers] Custom Post Types and Media Attachments

My problem is not that the post_id isn't getting associated. The image
being uploaded *does* have the post_id associated with it. I've
confirmed by looking at the Media Library, and the image is associated
with the post of my custom post type.

There is obviously something else going on that is preventing the
image from being inserted into the WYSIWYG text area. I just need to
find the time to dig into the code of the media uploader to see what
criteria is looked at in order to show the *Insert into Post* button.

I just wanted to see if anyone knew if this was how things were
supposed to be or if it might possibly be a bug. Depending on what I
find after further research, I might submit a bug report.
