Yes, your conclusion is correct. I use this mainly under Linux and my
(short) tests with the SM2 betas were also under Linux. But all of this
works the same way under Windows.

Yes this works, but it is not exactly the point.  ;-)
"Copy *Link* Location" works correct. It is "Copy *Image* Location" which
does not work. This is not a separate menu entry, but part of "Copy Image".
In my understanding this copies the image as image *and* the image URL as
text to the clipboard, and the receiving end can decide which of the it can
usee for a paste operation. Usually graphic programs paste the image and
text programs (editors or a terminal commandline etc.) paste the URL.

In recent Firefox releases these two functions are clearly divided into two
different menu entries what IMHO would also be the best solution for
Seamonkey.  But I would appreciate every solution which brings back the
possibility to copy the image URL of embedded images.
