No.  Sugar serves the files correctly.  Chances are:

1. you are trying your activity locally, directly in a browser from
2. you have added links to file://.../image.png

If 1. run your activity from Sugar, or use a local server like "python
-m SimpleHTTPServer"
If 2. use relative paths to link your images
