[typo] Flickr aggregator not working?

I spent a good part of the day trying to figure out why the Flickr aggregator I had placed in my side-bar was not displaying any images.

The source code received by my  browser shows all of the image links as:

<img alt="MyPhotoName" src="/my_typo_blog/public/images/.png" />

That was VERY disconcerting and led me to believe I'd perhaps messed up my Apache mod_rewrite setup or something. As a quick sanity check, I tried to use WEBrick but got the same results.

I decided to go out on the network looking for other Typo sites to see if any of them were using Flickr in their side-bar and much to my surprise, those that I found were showing exactly the same behavior as my own.

When I look at:
   <http://chuckiesmals.com/blog/>
or
   <http://victor.carotena.net/>

they seem to be exhibiting the same behavior!

Has the Flickr API changed and broken something in the aggregator or what?

Is there a better way to do this?
