    There should be a Finder icon.

    By the way, it looks like you 'cut out' the picture manually. An easier way is to press Cmd-Shift-4 (your mouse will turn into a crosshair), then press Space (the mouse will turn into a camera), then click the window you want a picture of.

    Try repairing permissions. I had some similar problems and this seemed to help.

    Have you restarted since this started happening? Does this problem (immediately) survive a reboot?
