Hipchat Windows Application not displaying JIRA Avatars

When using the HipChat Windows Application none of the JIRA Avatars are displaying in the main feed window.  The Issue Type, Priority, etc shows up fine, but not the profile picture.  These images show fine in the web versions, just not the Windows application.  Any thoughts?  Thanks!

I agree. Either:

1) provide an option in JIRA to allow unauthenticated access to the avatars


2) have HipChat proxy access to JIRA (given JIRA already trusts HipChat)

This matter is publicly tracked here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/HCPUB-1594
