I'm not sure where to point you on this one. It all works for me on
my GNOME-2.8 installation. Nautilus shows the .jpg/.jpeg file with
an icon of the picture displayed correctly. Double-clicking opens
up eog with the picture displayed, and dragging the file into eog
from Nautilus opens up the picture correctly.
