OK, I see this now in Word 2007. The problem you described is repeatable
by changing the text wrapping around a linked picture from Inline. The
linked picture I did this with immediately rebuilt itself with the right
hand part of the picture showing up on the left hand side. Yow.

If you look under the covers at what the Insert > Picture > Link does to
insert a linked picture, you can see that it is designed for Inline text
only. If you're familiar with the INCLUDEPICTURE field, it is still
available, but I haven't tested it for right operation yet.

I don't envy you. How about letting me know if you need a solution?
