    thumbnails for images on my desktop arent showing
    it works fine though if its on a stacks folder on the dock :(
    if its on the desktop or on the dock as an alias it only shows as a preview file and has the png/jpeg/bmp badge

    also my finder's sidebar isnt rendering correctly
    its all messed up when i collapse and expand it :eek:

    Have you tried restarting the computer? Sometimes the image cache gets out of wack and a simple restart usually fixes it.

    I was going to suggest that too but I figured you'd tried the obvious. Guess not. :p
