That was it. Probably worthy of an entry in the README :)
Actually, the README doesn't even mention that you can place images in
the same catalog as the movie and choose between them. Originally when
this feature was added, I got the impression that it would automatically
pick up the images as soon as it saw there were none assigned to the
movie already. Apparently that is not quite true. It will if you have
placed the image there *before* you go to IMDB (I hadn't), otherwise it
doesn't really care before you bring up the cover art selector...

Dave wrote me off-list also, saying you were right (which, as it turned
out, is right). I would have replied sooner but I had a minor network
outage that prevented this.

Thank you for the help.
