path to invalid pixbuf in a lens crashes unity

Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

In the Gwibber lens, we set the icon to the path of the cached avatar. Sometimes those cached images are actually html files containing a 404 error. When unity tries to render that as a pixbuf it causes a crash.

Unity shouldn't be this vulnerable to crashes from lenses.

Wasn't able to come up with a uri to make the icon loader code crash. tried generic 404's and nothing. need a stacktrace + uri that makes unity crash
