Comment (by wlpdrpat):

 Yes, the images are still available on the old site. When imported to the
 new site (without changing the image urls) the image urls are not changed
 and the images are not imported. When you view the site the images are
 viewable because they are still available on the old site.

 If I move the image files to a static location in the install and update
 the urls in the .xml export file - then when I import the images are
 imported but the urls to the images are not updated.

 I experienced this will 3 different 3.0.4 installs that had varied themes
 and plugins. So, for testing purposes I created a clean install configured
 as below and got the same results.

 Import site:
 WordPress 3.0.4 MS subdirectories setup
 WordPress Importer 0.2
 Theme: TwentyTen
 Plugins: No other plugins activated

 Could this be a bug with 3.0.4 that has been addressed with 3.1 as I see
 you have tested it with 3.1?
