Avatar upload and cropping not working

I am using Release - 1.9.7, Version - 2014050600 I am NOT using any addon theme.

Whenever I upload a graphic image for the admin avatar ( I have not tried this on other members yet ) I get the default picture for when a graphic image cannot be displayed. I have tried jpg, gif, and png all with the same result. I have tried a number of different sizes as well. When I have created groups, the upload and display work correctly.

The second issue I will forego for now as it may be resolved when this first issue is resolved.

So, if anyone has an idea as to the problem your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

thank you,

Shimon
