findAndReplaceWorkspacePaths crashes when mxd contains image layers

I am moving a large number of mxd files, and need to update the data sources for various layer files. I have written a script that uses findAndReplaceWorkspacePaths. The script works fine as long as the mxd does not contain an image service layer. If it does contain such a layer, the script crashes. I am not trying to change the path in the image layer, but other layers in that mxd file.

This looks like bug NIM060315, except I am not trying to change the image layer itself.

The bug report lists no workarounds. Is there anything I can do? Doing these by hand will be a big undertaking (and error prone).
