Comment (by zzmonty):

 This problem still exists in version 4.2.2.

 This problem can easily be fixed by simply changing
 "settings"->"permalinks"->"optional" to add the following data field:

 "media base" -> Text edit box.

 The problem shows itself when a permalink for a post is

 "custom structure" -> "/%postname%/"

 Media items should default to http://sample.com/media/picture
 Then if a post is set to no date, it can be http://sample.com/picture

 It might be too late to change the defaults for existing items, but it
 should at least be in there for new sites.

 The only way to fix this problem with the current GUI would be to change :

 "custom structure" -> "/post/%postname%"
