Could it be a cache issue?
http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/images/vcss is served as is:

   Content-Location: http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/images/vcss.png
   Content-Md5: uHCZJHx2TjLoPmdVdwXo+w==
   Content-Type: image/png
   Content-Length: 1133
   Vary: Accept

For http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/images/vcss.gif
   Content-Length: 1547
   Content-Md5: ZMFf26sMyqX3mHU4H/zPhg==
   Content-Type: image/gif
   Etag: "178shp7:vk28o15o"

For http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/images/vcss.png
   Content-Length: 1133
   Content-Md5: uHCZJHx2TjLoPmdVdwXo+w==
   Content-Type: image/png

I can't make the server serve the png content with image/gif Content-Type, 
but as the first resource is content-negociated, it might be a local cache 
issue on the browser.
So if someone has repeatable steps to reproduce the issue, it would be 
more than welcomed.
Cheers,
