It seems the avatars are displayed using absolute paths, created using the baseURL.
Now, some of us access JIRA through a proxy. Here the configured baseURL cannot be resolved and the user avatars / pictures aren't displayed.
Now for the questions:
Yes, the activity stream is indeed "special". Note that all the links in there should have the baseURL (including issue links), so you probably can't use those either. I don't think you can fix this in JIRA though, but I might be wrong. You'll probably need to fiddle with the proxy setting.

All activity stream links are created using the baseurl. I did a quick test on our backup instance, changed the baseurl to something.abc and every activity stream immediatly created its links using somehting.abc
Since it's "only" the activity stream we can live with that, but wouldn't it be possible to create those links in the same manner all the others are?
