When I change the Anonymous lang to el (Greek), I don't have to refresh to get the correct images when the board language is English and the user language is Greek.

Yes.
That is because the last time you viewed the page, it was Greek, so there was no need to refresh it.

I don't know if I make myself clear here. With the Anonymous user having the lang set to el (Greek):

-When I open the forum without being logged in, I see the images properly in the default language that is Greek.
-When I login, the images appear properly WITHOUT any refresh. Properly means in English since the user has this language as default.
-When I logout, the images appear in proper language, AGAIN WITHOUT REFRESHING. The login-logout circle works fine regarding images without refreshing the browser.

With the Anonymous language set to en I experience the problem I described before and I have to hit refresh. Different browser behavior by changing an db entry? The problem with the above workaround (El (Greek) lang in Anonymous) is that if I set as the default form language English and the user has Greek as selected lang, the problem reappears.

I am sorry, I am a web developer for more than 12 years and I can tell a problem from a normal behavior. Normal behavior was in 3.0.7 pl1. In 3.0.6, there was a bug too regarding the images that required a workaround until 3.0.7 pl1 was released. This behavior is not normal. As I said, tomorrow, I will restore a copy of 3.0.7 database backup and provide more proof that the behavior in 3.0.7pl1 was different to 3.0.8. Of course, I will test it in 3 different browsers that will be the same as the ones I used for 3.0.8.

If you believe the old image bug has reappeared, then you should report it to Bug Tracker http://www.phpbb.com/bugs/

I will report it. I also prepared a video that I will upload shortly to youtube and file sharing site and will post the links here. It is obvious there's a problem here. Stay tuned! ;)

In the following video, I recorded the behavior of a 3.0.7-PL1 installation regarding images, I upgraded this installation to 3.0.8 and I recorded the change in behavior (and therefore highlight the problem). Due to the length of the video, I split it to two parts. Links:

Part 1/2:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shbac19cnek

Part 2/2:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVhG2s4hpgk

The videos should be viewed in 480p since the original resolution is 640*480.

(sorry for wmv, I can upload to xvid too)...
