Google has the most entertaining bugs...

Okay, here's an experiment looking for some more data points. This is a picture of me, on Google+. Can you see this page; are you currently logged in to Google+ (or for that matter, Google in general); and are you Google+ friends with Hugh Taverner?

The reason I ask is that I can only see the picture if I am *not* logged into G+ -- if I am logged in, I get a 404 error. I'm trying to nail down the circumstances in which this 404 happens: whether being logged into Google services in general causes it, whether you have to have a G+ account, and whether being in Hugh's circles is relevant. (There's no deep agenda here -- I'm mostly idly curious what's going on, and might submit a bug report if I can nail down the recipe.)

It's obviously a bug in Google+. I have a nasty feeling that somebody got an if/then clause precisely wrong somewhere, although it's entirely plausible that Google is trying to do something excessively clever when I am logged in, and screwing it up...
