ImageDataObjectManager doesn't add images first time

I'm experiencing an error with ImageDataObjectManager that I can't work out. I'm using the same code on my development server (Windows) and live server (*nix). Code works on dev server, but not on live server.

Using an ImageDataObjectManager to add photographs to a page. After choosing existing image(s) I click continue. In the Editing file 1 of 2 page the image isn't show. The image not present icon is shown in editor.

I expected it to be an issue with rights in the assets folder, but if I click on one of the images that failed to add, I can then select the image successfully using the Image selector in the popup and a thumbnail appears (on resizing the thumbnails, they are correctly re-generated).

For what it's worth uploading a file through ImageDataObjectManager doesn't work either. However, uploading through Files & Images with DOM does work on both dev and live without issues.

Any clue to what the solution could be is appreciated!

   static $has_many = array(
         // snip
      'Images' => 'ImageResource'

   function getCMSFields() {
      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
         // snip
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Photos", new ImageDataObjectManager(
         $this, // Controller
         'Images', // Source name
         'ImageResource', // Source class
         'Image', // File name on DataObject
            'Name' => 'Name',
            'Description' => 'Description',
            'Maker' => 'Maker',
            'Email' => 'Contact email (auto anti-spam)',
            'Rights' => 'Free to publish?'
         ), // Headings
         // snip
      return $fields;

class ImageResource extends DataObject {
   static $db = array (
      'Name' => 'Text',
      'Description' => 'Text',
      'Maker' => 'Text',
      'Email' => 'Text',
      'Rights' => 'Boolean'

   static $has_one = array (
      'Image' => 'Image',
      'Species' => 'Species'

   public function getCMSFields_forPopup()
      return new FieldSet(
         new TextField('Name'),
         new TextareaField('Description'),
         new TextField('Maker'),
         new TextField('Email', 'Contact email (auto anti-spam)'),
         new CheckboxField('Rights','Free to publish?'),
         new FileUploadField('Image')

   function onBeforeWrite() {
      $this->Email = str_replace(array("@", "."), array("(at)", "(dot)"), $this->Email);
