Blogger Avatar loss

I was cleaning up some of my Picasa web albums and noted I had a a few duplicates of my "footprint in sand" avatar photo; so I deleted them. Just to ensure everything was okay I then logged into my profile settings and checked that my avatar was set to the remaining image.

To my surprise all my older comments now show an image not found symbol. It seems rather than pull the current avatar image from the profile Blogger hard-codes the image into the script; delete it and poof it no longer displays.

How silly.
