    this may have been covered already, but when you go to edit a post to fix an image and click the "delete image" check box and re-upload the same image (with the same file name) all in one step, it doesn't delete the old image and replace it with the new. it also doesn't work if you don't click the check box at all and try to just upload a new picture over the old one.

    i had to rename my image and then edit post to delete the prior image and then re-edit it to upload a new one. i think i used the edit button 7 or 8 times to fix it <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>

    A known bug, I'm afraid, which we're working on.

    For that, we may have to delay getting a fix... <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    (Actually, I pronounce it 'Lafe', although my Danish step-ma calls me 'Life'. I guess it's one of those names that the pronunciation varies from country to country.)

    If you use Shift+Refresh/Reload (or Ctrl+R or whatever combination your browser prefers), does that show the latest upload? I think that's usually required when editing one's userpic.

    I tested the edit scenario with two different files, giving each the name testing.png. After posting the first one, I edited the post and (without checking the box) used the replace image file control to upload the second one with the identical file name. After the screen refreshed I saw the first image, but then Firefox quickly loaded the second image in its place, almost as though it displayed the page from cache first before checking with the server for a new image. So it "worked for me," but I'm not sure my scenario is the same as yours because the file sizes were different and maybe that kind of change is needed before the browser downloads the changed image.
