Summary: Google Talk Display Picture Does Not Update

Initial Comment:
The other day I sent a screenshot of a gaim conversation to a friend, and she 
wanted to know why it was still showing her old display picture. I logged into 
gmail and it showed the updated picture.

At the time I was running beta 3 on Ubuntu Edgy. I have since updated to beta 5 
and the picture still has not updated.

I looked into this issue a little.  It appears this may be a bug/problem
coming from either the gmail chat feature and/or the gtalk server.  For
instance, I can reproduce the issue with no problem when using gmail chat
and gaim.  However, when I use the gtalk client (installed app) and gaim -
everything works perfect.  So my guess is that gmail chat is not correctly
asking the server to broadcast the new picture.  If the correct new
picture was coming from the gtalk server as it should, I believe gaim
would pick it up just as it does when you update your picture from the
gtalk client.

If anyone else has some info on this, I'd be curious.

I just downloaded beta5 today and installed it to test it out.

I added an MSN friend to it, and it has failed to get the display picture
for the account. I ran both the win32 and the X versions of the client,
and neither one will show a display picture for the buddy. I also tried
opening a chat with her and sent a few messages back and forth. Still no
display picture appears for her.
