No contact picture during incoming call (Android 5 + Nexus 5)

This morning I installed the official Android 5 on my Nexus 5 and I don't get a contact picture during incoming call anymore.
Please, tell how to fix this. Is this a bug or a feature?

It works fine for me.

Do you see the issue when the phone is locked or unlocked? The incoming call screen shows up differently in each case.

I have the issue when the phone is locked.
When it's unlocked everything is OK - I get a small banner with the contact info and picture on top of the screen.

I see. I wonder if it is related to the resolution of the picture used with the contact. Maybe they chose to not show a very low-resolution picture on the lower half of the entire home screen? That'd be my wild guess.

I have the same problem. And I don't like it at all. This isn't happend all the time, with all my pictures. When I call someone, the pictures are shown. Please, tell me why.

I had a similar problem when my S4 updated to Lollipop yesterday. Some photos were showing up and some were not. I looked at the image information and they all had identical properties. I went through editing all my contacts, replacing the photos with the same ones as I used originally, and they all now appear. Phones are even more mysterious than computers (and I say that as someone who worked in IT for 43 years).
