 > Is this actually a problem?  Does any other client behave differently
 from this?  It doesn't really scale to poll a user's entire buddy list at
 login for updated buddy icons.

 I can confirm this occurs for XMPP also.
 Also, if an AIM user is available only on his cell phone that's linked to
 his account, the buddy icon for the account isn't downloaded.
 I can see how this could be a problem for users with extremely large buddy
 lists, but shouldn't there at least be an option for other users?
