Bob and Jane share a PC.
Bob logs it to his account and decides to change Jane's avatar in systemsettings.
After applying settings he then proceeds to open up kickoff.
Kickoff then displays icon belonging to Jane.
He can override Jane's icon by changing his own.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look at your avatar in kickoff
2. Change avatar of someone else
3. Enjoy not your avatar on your kickoff
Wrong icon/avatar displayed.
Do not set someone else's avatar on my kickoff.

Logs when editing avatar of user Regina when logged in as user Pepko
Having the same problem with 5.6.5 on Kubuntu 16.04.
After installation I added a second user. Then I set the avatar for the first user and then for the second user. Now the avatar of the second user is displayed for the first user in the start menu and in the login manager. But in the settings dialog the avatars are displayed correctly.
Is there a file in your home directory ~/.face or ~/.face.icon
Is that correct or is it from user2?
Please reset the status to unconfirmed when replying.
.face and .face.icon files are correct
I've tried deleting them but if I change user2 icon then correct files are recreated.
In my case (Plasma 5.6.5) as soon as I (user1) change the avatar for user2 the .face and .face.icon files are changed to the new avatar of user2.
Another strange problem with the avatars: When I had set the avatars the first time I saw them at the login screen. But after reboot the avatars are not shown. And setting the avatars again does not change this situation. I'm wondering how sddm can display avatars when home encryption is enabled.

Sure it can. SDDM can read from "/usr/share/sddm/faces/". That's how I got it set, manualy, systemsettings is not creating any files there for me.

When updating another user's avatar don't save icon into our home
We want to save the face using AccountsService, but for backwards
compatibility we also save the icon into ~/.face for old
apps/DisplayManagers that still expect that.
This works when setting a face as the current user, but doesn't make
sense when setting the icon of another user.
We can't fix it to write into another user's home, so instead of trying
just skip that step and only update AccountsService.
