If this would be the case it is fine for me.  I just switched to

     $IP = "/var/lib/mediawiki";

and the image pages themself are fine.  I guess the other problem that the
preview showed the images while the rendered page did not was just a caching
problem.  It did not vanished for me but using a different browser everything
is fine now.

I think we can close this bug if we can assure that $IP is set
correctly in all new installations.  Perhaps an entry in README.Debian
with a hint for old installations might be a good hint.

Kind regards
