yes, I can see the logos pic when the bug occurs.
I know of these threads
confirmed by OP
so there is not much evidence for this alt thing.
I think it's not a float drop as usual, as it is not reproducible locally.
Those seeing it online cannot see it twice in one session, only
initially. Possibly it's related to the incremental rendering of big
pages plus connection plus cache. Clearing the cache in IE should have
the same effect, but no. Once the page was rendered, the float drop is
gone. That's why I had to rename the folder each time to see the bug.
And with an empty alt string, the float drop vanishes, here on my side
If this is real, it must be related to the problem with the missing
image you are mentioning. Maybe there is a short moment of ambivalence
where IE does not really know if it is there or not.
