    Try dragging the first one off of the dock ... then drag it back from Finder.

    Did you recently perform a restore? Perhaps your Dock settings using Mobile Me?

    What has happened is the link to that folder is broken, so the Dock cannot find it.

    So drag the current folder to the Trash and then drag the Downloads folder from your User folder to the Dock to restore the link.
