If a picture is worth a thousand words, then:

Flair from Sept 06

At first I thought that Stack Overflow wasn't resizing my normal flair picture from myOpenID, but then I remembered that I linked in my Facebook account recently.

My guess is that the flair code is not resizing my Facebook profile picture to fit in the available space, and instead cropped it.

The trigger here is that your facebook profile picture is just ever so slightly wider than it is tall. This case is rare, and wasn't handled correctly.

A fix will go out with the next build.

Due to the way flair is cached, it may take up to 24 hours after that build for you to see it take effect.
