Active Directory 'thumbnailPhoto' attribute does not show as image

I tried to display a thumbnailPhoto from an Active Directory attribute but it just shows the raw binary data in the attribute in stead of showing the images. I can't find the task 11642 patch in the Core.pm code. Must have been taken out again before the current version. Here is my query:
%LDAP{
  "objectClass=user"
  base="OU=users,OU=Sasolburg,DC=karbochem,DC=co,DC=za" 
  cache="3600" 
  header="---++ Sasolburg$nSasolburg office has $count users in total.$n$n| *Name* | *Mail* | *Telephone* | *Mobile* | *Employee #* | *Title* | *Department* | *Photo* |$n"  
  format="| $displayName | $mail | $telephoneNumber | $mobile | $sAMAccountName| $title | $department | <img src=$thumbnailPhoto /> |"
  clear="$mobile,$telephoneNumber,$mail,$title,$department,$thumbnailPhoto"
  sort="displayName"
}%

Please help! I am almost there. This is an amazing plugin. Thx

I'm no expert on the plugin, but this query is working against our AD server and correctly displaying thumbnail images.

%LDAP{"(objectClass=user)" 
  base="OU=IT,OU=TCA Users,DC=tca,DC=local"
  limit="20" 
  header="| *Nr* | *Name* | *Mail* | *Photo* |$n" 
  format="| $index | $cn | $mail | <img src=\"$jpegPhoto\" alt=\"$cn\" title=\"$cn\" width=\"100px\" /> |" 
  footer="$n<br/><font color='red'>$count users</font>"
  exclude=".Test" 
  sort="cn"
  clear="$mail,$jpegPhoto"
}%

The problem is that jpegPhoto is automatically treated as a blob (binary large object) by the plugin, but thumbnailPhoto isn't. To get this to work for thumbnailPhoto instead of jpegPhoto, you need to specify it as a blob:

%LDAP{
  "objectClass=user"
  base="OU=users,OU=Sasolburg,DC=karbochem,DC=co,DC=za" 
  cache="3600" 
  header="---++ Sasolburg$nSasolburg office has $count users in total.$n$n| *Name* | *Mail* | *Telephone* | *Mobile* | *Employee #* | *Title* | *Department* | *Photo* |$n"  
  format="| $displayName | $mail | $telephoneNumber | $mobile | $sAMAccountName| $title | $department | <img src='$thumbnailPhoto' /> |"
  clear="$mobile,$telephoneNumber,$mail,$title,$department,$thumbnailPhoto"
  sort="displayName"
  blob="thumbnailPhoto"
}%

This points the image source to a file on the server that contains the binary content from the thumbnailPhoto field in Active Directory.
