We're aware of the issue, but the admin who would sort this out for us is a bit busy at the moment with his actual day-job.

What you can do in the meanwhile is to upload your avatar to something like photbucket or imageshack and just link it directly.
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Thanks a lot for looking into this. Also been struggling to change my AVATAR.  ;)

Strangely enough that one is still ok. The boob, ass and monster faces are a bitt much.
