I donīt think rtf knows about OLE. I use a debian 2.2 and DocBook 4.0, 
jade, the other version numbers I donīt have present... 

I can load the rtf into Startwriter from Star office 5.2 under Linux
and all images show up (I use all PNG, ca. 30MB images). However, the
index has no page-numbers...

In word it works fine. So maybe load the rtf in word then save it,
there *must* be a option to keep the images only as filereferences in
word but it seems noone knows that option and I get 200MB files back
