Missing buddy icons

My buddy icons are not displayed in the Pidgin interface in spite of
being present in the .purple/icons directory of Windows. Buddy icons
are missing for all accounts: ICQ and XMPP (as well as MSN).
There is a 2 year old ticket on this
(httpsdeveloper.pidgin.imticket12999) but the patch suggested was not
verified as working and as just a windows user I am not knowledgeable in
recompiling the code.
I have attempted to empty the icon cash, started Pidgin with the -n
switch disabled the accounts, changed status to "available" and then
re-enabled them one at a time but no buddy icons reappeared.
While not critical for the app's operation, the icons did work in the
past and I was wondering if someone is willing to work on fixing them again?
OS: WinXP sp2
Pidgin ver: 2.10.6
