OSX Lion Custom Account Icon Reverts Back To Default Account Icon

Hi Everyone,

We are having an issue with a new Mac mini on OSX Lion. For a reason unknown, the custom account icon we select reverts back to the default account icon provided by Apple. This is the image icon that appears when you log in.

Here are the things we have tried so far:

We made sure that we “locked” the Account settings to “prevent further changes”

Completely shut down the system- unplugged the power cable for a minute before restarting

Reset P-RAM

Run Disk Utility, repaired disk permissions

Any help would be greatly appreciated. We would like to refrain from re-installing the OS.

Thanks!

Seems to be a glitch with Lion. For some people with this problem changing the user's account picture in the Address Book fixed it.
