  1. create new composer
  2. add new label
  3. enable "Render as HTML" and enter text
    <img src="http://gis-forum.org.ua/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/copy-GIS-Forum-2014-Logo-Mini.png">
  4. label rendered as empty rectangle
  5. export composition in any format
  6. now label displayed correctly

Tested on 2.0.1, 2.2 and master

This is a deliberate design decision. Since the composer labels are automatically updated as the label content changes the label will attempt to render invalid/partial html while the user is entering the label html content. Generally this is ok, but for images qt segfaults and crashes qgis if an attempt is made to render an invalid image url. Consequently composer labels are coded to only render html images when exporting a composition.
