Ringtone icons missing in iTunes library

Has anyone noticed that ringtonable songs in your iTune's library have lost their icons? You can still make them into ringtones with the Store menu but ringtone icons only show up for ringtones already made and in the Store.
Anyone else having this problem with 7.4.2?

Thanks, but that's not the problem. The column is there. I have had ringtones view enabled for days and they used to be there. Then they disappeared. Just for ringtoneable purchases, not in the store.
I saw on the apple support boards that this happened to quite a few users.

This happened to me too. What you have to do is attempt to create
a ringtone anyway from a song you know to be eligible. In doing so you
will see the ringtone indicators will reappear.

I don't think you actually have to go as far as creating a ringtone but just start the process and then cancel. That should do it.

I heard about that fix, I have been able to create ringtones from songs in my library, but the icons did not return. Tried quitting iTunes and restarting too. I can make the ringtone (if I remember which are eligible) but still no icons.

Update! I restarted my laptop (with my iPhone out of the dock) and they came back. A co-worker found re-docking his iPhone (without restarting his laptop) caused them to return to his ringtonable tunes column on his laptop. Could be a coincidence or is Apple having software and or connection issues while looking at my library and inserting the icons?
