Facebook 1.5 doesn't sync all FB friend pictures to BB contacts

I have synced my BlackBerry contacts with my Facebook ones using the Facebook app version 1.5.0.32, however some of my contacts' Facebook photos aren't pulled down to my BB.  I have tried refreshing and doing a manual syc but the same happens.  Any ideas please?

I don't have a resolution, but have experienced the same issue though.  I've only noticed this with one contact though, all others sync just fine.  For whatever reason though, her profile pic refuses to sync to my BB.  The issue persisted with the single contact through a cache clearing, disconnecting and reconnecting to BB address book, and a battery-pull.

I've just checked and can see two that don't pull the picture down for me although there might be more, and all the others (100-odd) are fine.  It does pull down the other info into the BB contact however, like company and Facebook name.

 

I also tried the things you have and noticed it doesn't even say "Retrieving profile picture" when I disconnect and reconnect the contact, which it does if I disconnect any other contact, delete their picture then re-add them.  Wonder if it's something to do with the picture format.
