This issue has been resolved.
Descriptive Problem Summary:
Attaching an image to an atom did not use that atom's current direction or icon_state for the image.

Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
1) Create an atom.
2) Create and display an /image attached to that atom.
3) Change the atom's direction or icon_state.

Expected Results:
The image should change icon_state and direction to match the base atom, unless the image specifies its direction or state outright, just like an overlay would.

Actual Results:
The image's direction and icon_state stay fixed, even if the /image itself didn't specify either one.

Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked?
This bug appears to be very old, and from the internal code it was clear that using the base atom's direction was always meant to be done, but wasn't working properly. Using the base atom's icon_state could be considered new functionality but is included in this report for completeness.
