Instead of replacing the image with an ellipsis, how about just cropping
or resizing the image to fit?  I would think a small thumbnail is more
useful than an ellipsis in many cases.

AFAIK at least, the only way to increase the line height is to have some
tall glyph on that line.

Whether the jumping is acceptable or not will depend a lot on your use
