This is a bug I reported in may and got no response, thought it would be ok to
refresh it. I apologize if it's not.

Here's a test case. What you will see is that the image in the second
paragraph completely overlaps the first paragrah:

from reportlab.platypus import SimpleDocTemplate, Paragraph
from reportlab.lib.styles import getSampleStyleSheet
styles = getSampleStyleSheet()

def go():
doc = SimpleDocTemplate("phello.pdf")
style = styles["Normal"]
p = Paragraph('This should be above the image', style)
p = Paragraph('<img src="thanks.png">', style)
p = Paragraph('This should be below the image', style)
