Same effect could be observed on the review page.

    That extra hat is actually the hat from the avatar... Jan 2, 2017 at 0:43
  • @PythonMaster what do you mean? I don't have hat in my avatar. Here is another, better, example of the bug. Jan 2, 2017 at 9:52
  • @PythonMaster you are right. See my diagnosis in the answer. Jan 3, 2017 at 9:54

This happens because initially the hat is rendered on the user avatar. Once the large user card is shown, that rendering remains, so it looks like the hat is rendered twice on the user card, which it isn't. It just sits in the background.

After the user card is sized down, the original hat on the avatar isn't used any more. The resized hat from the user card is. Hence it doesn't show the second time around.

This could be 'fixed' by removing the hat in the background when the user card is opened, not closed.
