Please help beta-test the userpic factory:
Please report any bugs or confusion.
Apparently I'm retarded because I can't draw the box around the picture... Maybe the original picture is too big?
I have the same problem. Nothing happens.
the first time i made the icon it didn't match the preview, but rather an 100x100 square on the original pictures. i reuploaded it and tried again and then it did work
totally worked for me. Awesome feature.

works for me.
I'm am experiencing similar issues as reported by the comment above mine - the selection box seems to be semi-responsive to mouse movements, as it took a number of tries to select the entire image.
Otherwise this is a great feature! :)
Ok - more data. I was using IE6. When I used Firefox, I could create the box, but what was saved was a solid color skinny vertical rectangle, not the uploaded image cropped by the box.
I tried dragging a box around my face and it looked fine... but it turned out to be a little "cheeky" in the conversion...

Error from URL
The next time I left the square alone and just clicked make icon... this seemed to work. Thanks, Brad! You're going to put us photoshoppers out of business!!! ;-)
Firefox worked fine, except the box drawing code, though my pointer was a long way away from where the box actually was.
It seems to hate Safari 2.0.3 (417.9.2).
I get my lovely mugshot loaded, but the JS draggy bit doesn't drag.
I do see a small little box in the top left corner of the image which I assume is the bounds for the selection.
Safari's JS console is empty also.
I upload an image in the 500MB range. Get a sensible 80k image to select the region on. But nothing happens when I try to use the mouse to change the size of the region to include. Just the little initial box in the upper left corner.
Same symptom with a 3.5MB image and 230k selection window.

You say "not using default settings", but don't say what your settings are, so it's hard to help.
I could says "works for me!" in all my browsers, but that wouldn't help either.

works OKLatest Opera 9 weekly build
(Opera 9, build 197):
selection area stuck at top left corner, a couple of pixels wide, preview reflects this, submitting gives an error,
"Invalid userpic creation parameters."screenshot
seems to work perfectly on Opera now (same version, different machine tho, will reverify later)
IE 6.0 Windows XP, won't let me drag the box.
Heh. Drag the box. Now that just sounds . . . dirty.
Update: Works on FireFox 2.o perfectly.
Nifty. Only pipe dream would be for it to add a little sharpening to the image once it's resized, but I can't even fathom how that would be possible, so I'll STFU and be greatful for this neat new tool.
