    i've just "upgraded" to sierra and whenever i separate a tab from a finder window, a small folder icon appears on the desktop. sometimes it floats on top of other windows - see attached. it's really annoying - especially since i turned off automatically creating tabs instead of folder windows and it's still making tabs. any fix for this weirdness?

    The only thing I've found to recover from this bug is to restart the Mac. Another possible way to recover is to log out and then log back in, but I have not tried it.
