There are two cases that I know of:

Either it is put on a single character, e.g. by insert-image, or on
the full string representing the image data, e.g. by auto-image-file-mode.

My patch only changes the behaviour for the auto-image-file-mode case,
so it is not a single character...  

What is the problem of one vs. multiple chars?

I do see there is still a problem with my patch, as the inserted
image no longer has a yank-handler (removed by yank-excluded-properties)
so if it is again copied from the buffer and yanked multiple times,
the visible result is still just one copy of the image.
