So - I have already spent some 4 hours, or more, trying to fix this one.

The Autosave executes nearly the same code path as Save As; but there is
something different happening - at some stage, the ID's get invalidated
(both during Save As, as well as during Autosave), but in the Save As
case, they are re-created, while during the Autosave, they are still the
old ones - leading to loss of the images.  I dropped the ball at that
stage & did not find where exactly the ID's are recreated in the Save As

Should the above ring any bell to someone & wants to step in, just set
the Autosave to 1 minute, open the document from the bug, and wait one
minute; and you'll lose the images :-(
