In the past, and it may be your problem now, that issue has arose when
the user pictures are stored in their own directories, and their
homespace has permissions that doesn't allow access to other users,
likewise for child directories and the image file, itself.  For GDM (and
most probably KDM, too), it's a special user that runs the login screen.

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
