XF 1.2 Partial reinstall today, and now smilies are.... strange..

All of my smilies now have a broken image in front of them. I can goto the image path while editing the smilie and its normal, but on the forum and in admin, its like shown below. I searched for a way to rebuild smilie cache.. I also added and removed some hoping it would do the trick, but no dice.

any clues?
