My god is  MML still supported.
It could be a bug in the MML2MIF as this is ancient code and may not
produce valid 5.5 MIF.
Though Frame should be able to open MIF from any era.

If you can write the MIF directly it may make your life easier.

Looking at one of my MIF files the code looks like this.
  <ImportObFileDI `<c\>common<c\>images<c\>10_086 header.pcx'>
  <ImportObFile `common/images/10_086 header.pcx'>

These files are stored in CVS as MIF and Frame has no problem opening
them - but I am running on Windows.
