If the domain name or path info changed, its possible that a plugin
serialized the image path and is counting the number of characters. You'll
see something like a:37{c:http://domain.com/asfd/blah.jpg} (that's just a
guess, don't have a moment to look up what it actually looks like.

Also, awesome name man. ;)
