Any ideas?

I'm pretty sure WLW uploads were never added as part of a post gallery. The methods available for clients (like WLW) to upload files don't provide a means for that file to be associated with a post.

Let me assure you that they were - at least in 2.7 this method worked absolutely fine with me (which is why I started the thread - it did work!)

Bump and confirm that Wordpress 2.8 is no longer adding image metadata to posts when post is uploaded via XMLRPC solutions like Windows Live Writer.

Next verion, maybe?

#10 @josephscott

I wonder if this is related to #10521 it might be that WLW is using the enclosure approach to associate the uploaded images with a post (which I hadn't thought of) and that the -1 look up is failing.

Dear Joseph,
