Not looking for bg images in the images folder #63

Seems like Scout is looking for my bg images in the Output folder, even though I specified an images folder.




But when I set, say: background: url('object.jpg');

It looks for the image at:


If I get all crazy and try: background: url('static/images/object.jpg');

... and then move the static folder inside the stylesheets folder, then it looks correctly (sort of) at:


And the image shows up in the background as hoped for.

But that's cray. Who wants the images folder in the stylesheets folder?

Use the image-url helper (provided by Compass) so Compass/Sass can generate the image path I think you're expecting:

 background: image-url('object.jpg');

Let me know that resolves the issue! Thanks!
