I have done the following tests to isolate the problem:
1. Replaced href link:
<LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="http://www.favicon.com/favicon.ico">

Result:
This icon renders properly in my browser Konqueror

2. Replaced icon:
In order to eliminate a problem with tsl.ico I replaced it with favicon.ico, 
which we know is working.
I run this from my test server.

Result:
favicon.ico is not rendered in my browser.

3. Type URL directly to icon
3.1
URL: http://www.favico.com/favicon.ico

Result:
Browser prompted to save icon

3.2
URL: http://myserver/favicon.ico

Result:
Browser renders rubbish

From these test I can see that the server at www.favicon.com behaves different 
from my test server.
All other things being equal it look logical to me to conclude there is a 
problem in the way Apache handles files with an ".ico" extension.
