comment Why is WordPress automatically modifying image URLs? (Tracking pixel from RSS)
Thanks for your help - you cleared up a lot and I eventually fixed it by writing a plugin that hooks 'the_content' and 'the_editor_content' - the plugin saves and restores what I need before everything else gets to a post, and after other plugins, etc are finished with it.

I modified default-filters.php to remove filters for that call wp_kses_data from just about everything - still no change, in the editor itself and through RSS. Obviously something is happening when a post gets saved, regardless of through the UI or using code.

I found media_sideload_image - which seems to upload a given image and return the modified URL - I coded it to just return whatever it gets and am still seeing the same behaviour. What a pain.

I am using FeedWordPress and I am also trying with WP-Robot; the behaviour is the same in both cases. This happens in the editor too - just add an image, that's hosted elsewhere, to a post in HTML mode and save. Go to your posts list and edit the post again in HTML mode and you'll see that WP modified the image's URL.
