[development] D6 node object question

When I load a node, if my module knows that the content type is selected 
for use with it, it takes the field name it's supposed to interact with 
and looks at the field's contents.

One site I'm running this on has 8 content types in use. Seven were 
marked to be used with the module, and for each, if the field were 
field_image, I would access $node->field_image, and all was well.

Today I enabled it using the final content type, and added a field_image 
to that content type too. The only difference with that one is that it 
is enabled for use with node block.

I find that although other cck fields on the content type are at the 
$node->fieldname level, the image field does not appear there, but does 
appear in $node->content->fieldname.  So, I'm wondering, should I be 
looking in $node->content->fieldname on all of the content types instead 
of just $node->fieldname, and if not, what's going on with this one?
