    Does anyone happen to know offhand how the icons that make up the Application stack get rebuilt? I've noticed that when I install new applications or update old ones, I get the following sort of "not found" icon. They generally go away quickly, other times they hang around for days. So I'm assuming there's an automated process that generates them... I'd like to kick it off manually if possible:

    Drag the Applications stack off the Dock, then create a new one by dragging it from the Macintosh HD/Applications to the dock again.

    I used the remove/re-add the stack trick... works, but annoying, since I need to change the sort order and display again.

    I'll give the finder restart a try next time. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Open Terminal and type "killall Dock"

    This relaunches the Dock and fixes the issue.
