Gilles is a fairly well-known user, so imagine my surprise when I see a gravatar icon for his profile pic (or whatever it's called) instead of the customary mushrooms (?!). Yet when I hovered over the pic, the pop-up box showed the proper image. I checked out chat, and there too, the tiny pic which comes up with an @mention showed the proper one. What's happening?

    Just came here to report this on my own profile. No end of annoying. – Nathan Tuggy Jul 1 '15 at 3:20

    There are some issues with pictures caching at the moment. SE is aware and working on it. – Kevin Jul 1 '15 at 3:27

    and it's just not right not presenting Gilles as a "fun guy"...(sorry, couldn't help it) – James Jul 1 '15 at 13:38

In the latest build, a bug slipped through on some code that refactored profile image rendering.

A fix is being pushed out right now. Sorry.
