Most of my album art works fine, although I haven't worked out how to get it to work for albums with a question mark in their name.
I added 'Fleetwood Mac-Rumours' to my player today, and the album art for it doesn't work.
The ID3 tags for artist/album look correct; it appears in the database correctly.
[dwmw2@macbook Rumours]$ id3info The\ Chain\ \(LP\ Version\).mp3 | egrep TPE1\|TALB
=== TALB (Album/Movie/Show title): Rumours
=== TPE1 (Lead performer(s)/Soloist(s)): Fleetwood Mac
The file 'Fleetwood Mac-Rumours.bmp' exists in the .rockbox/albumart directory and is correct:
[dwmw2@macbook albumart]$ file Fleetwood\ Mac-*
Fleetwood Mac-Miles of Greatest Hits.bmp: PC bitmap, Windows 3.x format, 100 x 100 x 24
Fleetwood Mac-Rumours.bmp: PC bitmap, Windows 3.x format, 100 x 100 x 24
Fleetwood Mac-Tango In The Night.bmp: PC bitmap, Windows 3.x format, 100 x 100 x 24
It was generated with 'convert -thumbnail 100x100 <input> Fleetwood\ Mac-Rumours.bmp' like the others were. I've even tried cutting and pasting the artist and album name from the id3tags in case there was a typo I didn't spot. I've checked for gratuitous spaces in the id3tags too... I have no idea why it isn't finding the picture.
The bitmap is at http://david.woodhou.se/Fleetwood%20Mac-Rumours.bmp
This is with version 3.2 with the cabbiev2 theme.

Reason for closing: Wont Fix
Additional comments about closing: Not really a bug, but a less resilient implementation. Embedded album art is supported since a while now and is a perfect alternative.
