On my work Google Apps account, the Google Talk gadget in Gmail (or any other browser interface) shows a different profile picture to the Google Talk desktop application and to my image as shown in Gmail settings.

I have tried the obvious things: clicking the picture itself to 'Change Picture', updating the image in Gmail settings and the desktop application.

I have cleared cookies, cache, etc, but I still get the problem even when I log in using different browsers or on different machines.

I changed jobs a year ago without ever resolving this. Pretty sure my question pre-dated G+ by some way though ;-) – FoleyIsGood Nov 14 '13 at 16:37
