Why are GItLab custom avatars broken?

For some strange reason, after disabling Gravatar on a GitLab server, all of the images don’t render, as the server tries to retrieve them from, rather than the server’s IP address. I am given a 404 error from nginx when I go to view the image in a new tab. Any ideas?


We tried to replicate but everything is fine after we disabled it. You probably have a misconfiguration some place else.

It would be pretty strange if your self-hosted GitLab would try to get something from, our static website.
