it might be just the path resolution clash. That, and I also find the
scaling factor plays a role. Here is what I usually do:

<!doctype book PUBLIC ...
<!ENTITY ...
<!ENTITY % printout "IGNORE">
<!ENTITY % online "IGNORE">

 <figure id="fig-01">
  <title>Main Window Dialog</title>
     <imagedata fileref="figures/grapp-main-win.png"
             format="png" scale="50">
     <imagedata fileref="../figures/grapp-main-win.png" format="png">
      <para>MainWindow Dialog</para>

hope this helps,
