I had previously posted this on the Cyanogen bug tracker, but apparently I'm the only one with the issue. I'll paste my description of the problem from there:

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1.Open Google Maps and ensure the phone has a solid GPS lock
2.Press the Camera button to go to the Camera viewer
3.Take a picture
4.View the picture just taken
5.Press Menu and select "Show on Maps"

What do you see?
"No Location information contained in this image."
What did you expect to see?
The location of my photo shown in Google Maps.

Please include the following info from FASTBOOT mode


Which version of CyanogenMod?
Did you wipe before flashing?
Yes (tried on multiple occasions)
Have you tried running fix_permissions?
Have you tried rebooting?
Apps2sd / partition type/size?
Yes. ext3/500MB
What size/class sD card?
16GB kingston

I've tried starting maps first, starting camera first then switching to maps
and back and still no location. Could it be that there is some permissions issue with my phone (akin to the occasional permissions issue people sometimes have with wpa_supplicant.conf)?

Any ideas at all? I have no problems with the GPS or the camera individually, but would be nice to be able to use them together...

If its googgles or your doing the geotag thing, your location might be unavilable by the GPS.

No, read above, I open Maps first and ensure that I've got a solid GPS lock, only then do I go to Camera and take a picture. I've even tried going back and forth between Camera & Maps. No dice.

I'm not even using Google Goggles.
