I recently upgraded to Mountain Lion 10.8.2, and regularly, after a few days of use, I notice that my Google chat icon / image / avatar is being changed to an image that I have on my local machine, that I once had as my login avatar, but have not used now for over 8 years! 

 

It seems that Mountain Lion is telling Google's chat (but not Google+, or facebook) to use this image as my avatar for google chat, even though I am not explicitly telling it to, AND both my contacts and login profile images (System Preferences -> Users & Groups)  on my mac are set to the correct image I want.

 

Originially, my avatar was an animated gif, but I'm trying to replace that everywhere with a standard gif just in case that's the problem, but it doesn't seem to be helping!

 

Does anyone know where else I may be having this phantom image of me, from 8 years ago show up??  The picture is not my current login or contacts pictures...

 

 

I did look at this discussion:

https://discussions.apple.com/message/19272677#19272677 but changing my contacts image, even to a standard jpg/gif, did not help.

 

Does anyone know where else I may be having this phantom image of me, from 8 years ago show up??
