Maybe it is possible to do this is 1.9.  If so, kindly point me in the 
right direction.  If it is not possible, consider this a feature request. 
I have a document where I want to insert frames containing images in 
the document's margins and anchor them to paragraphs or characters. 
I don't really care about the vertical position of the frame, but 
near the anchor point is better than far.  However, I do want 
the frame to be on the same page as the anchor point.  I also 
do not want frames to overlap. 
For example, if the anchor points of two frames are close to each 
other and near the bottom of the page, writer should put the 
bottom-most frame down at the bottom of the page and then push 
the other frame up high enough to avoid overlapping the lower frame. 
I don't want to manually fine tune the positioning as I want the 
document to adapt if I change page sizes or add/remove text. 
I was hoping the "fly frames" in 1.9 would allow me to do this, 
but I haven't been able to figure out how.

Reassigned to requirements.

I was surprised that this bug still exists in the final 2.0 version. So I
created a small example document showing how two graphics anchored to to
different characters in the same paragraph overlap. 

Manual readjustment is not a solution because a readjustment is necessary
everytime new text is inserted before the paragraph. Anchoring graphics as
characters avoids the overlapping but results in gaps in the text when the
picture doesn't fit onto the same page. 

Because this bug makes the option "anchor to character" practically unusable (at
least for me) it would be nice if it could be fixed in the near future. Maybe
the example document helps.

Enclosing an example is a good idea.  I should have done that initially. 
Here is another example that is similar to what I'd like to do in real usage. 
It is in a user's manual where I'd like to put screen shots in the margins.
