icon hunting evil

Question about icons in LJ

Okay. I have never deleted any of the icons I've uploaded, and I'm now at my limit of 117. The reason I've never deleted them is that when I go back and look at old entries it's weird to me if the icons aren't the same--it always throws me when that happens in a friend's entries, etc. It's like changing the past.

Anyway, my question is this: if one deletes an icon and then uploads a new one, does that new icon fill the spaces the other one occupied, in all old entries and comments? That's what happens to an icon designated as the default icon, I can confirm that; but is it true across the board?
