Changed my avatar, now all my old comments show a broken image icon

Kind of not what I was expecting.... I didn't click the "delete avatar" button in changing it, but all of my old comments which used it are now showing not my new one, and not my old one, but a broken image place-holder icon instead.
Any way around that for future reference? Or does it maybe take a while for changes to get reflected site-wide?
If I re-upload my previous avatar in my Profile, will it show up as a new one and still show a broken icon for existing comments?
No rush on a reply, I can certainly live with it either way, just think clarity would be nice.

    I can see a new avatar associated with older comments from last year. I suspect it justs takes time to propagate throughout.
