changing the logo on settings/GENERAL_SKIN_SETTINGS/ doesn't work

It simply displays an empty image spot, so it's clear that there is supposed to be an image there... but the image is not shown. I've tried with .jpg and .gif.

@Evgeny: and btw what's the point of these askbot-specific settings vs. standard MEDIA_ROOT and MEDIA_URL?

@piskvorky, we should remove the unnecessary custom variables, I agree with you.
