A fix for this bug? Simple, don't use Joomla 1.5, and update Autostand to ver. 4.x ;)
This issue was related to an autostand version, for Joomla 1.5! .
Besides, when this issue come up, back in 2009, we released a path to correct this.
In the latest autostand for Joomla 2.5 or 3.x, there's no such function, neither the images folder!
This bug is does not happen in Autostand latest versions.
