How to fix broken image paths when changing download method from Private to Public?

Question Status: 

This is a long-running question I've had. I can't find a forum post with exactly the same question, though this one comes close: http://drupal.org/node/489850

I have a site that's used the Private download method from the start. I'd like to switch to Public, so I can enable CSS optimization. Easy enough to do, and most images – logo, and images inserted into text via TinyMCE – are unaffected.

But I also have many nodes with images attached via the Images module, which adds an "Attached images" upload option to nodes. (Side note: Why it's labeled "Attached images" when it appears to allow attachment of only one image, I don't know.)

Manhandle that database back into shape

A short tale of how I got the links page working after a Weblinks module upgrade broke it.

The ideal solution would be to track down the exact problem, posting issues and working with the module's maintainers, finally squaring everything away with the current module version. However, the issues page doesn't show anyone else having trouble with the module; the problem may be an obscure glitch related to my frequent abuse of this site for experimentation purposes. More importantly, at the moment I'm short on time to fiddle with this. I decided I'd just go back to the previous version of the module and be done with it.

Here's the process, including an unexpected problem necessitating light database vivisection: Read more about Manhandle that database back into shape
