Yes - That's not the problem. I have 2 IPods, both Rockboxed - I put ALAC files on one after not getting either one to show album art with FLAC files. No problems with the ALAC files, the cover art showed up fine - same themes on both.
I have come to the conclusion that album art just can't be used with FLAC files. At least no one can tell me how to make it work. So, maybe FLAC is just not worth the trouble.
I works just fine for me on my 5G iPod. All I do is place a .bmp of each album cover in the corresponding album directory on my computer before copying the files to my iPod. You have used the Database menu in Rockbox to build the database, right? I can't remember if that's necessary to get album art to display, but it's what I'm in the habit of doing after loading new content onto my iPod and all is well.
EDIT: Also, be sure that you don't actually have any artwork embedded in any of the audio files you put on your Rockboxed iPod. If there is artwork embedded, be sure to strip it out first.
