What i would do is create another MSN account and use Miranda IM to connect to MSN instead of the Microsoft client. Then you would add the address the thief is using on your contact list and turn on protocol logging in Miranda. If he logs in again, you should immediately see his ip adress in the logs when the plugin downloads the avatar pic.

P.S. You can download the latest build of Miranda IM at: http://miranda-icq.sourceforge.net/alpha
Only the latest builds allow logging so be sure to install a nightly.
