    In stacks, i'm trying to figure out what casing this.

    After you install an app, to the Applications folder, the icon in stacks view does Not associate the icon it should represent...

    Note: This is only non-appearance icon, in the stack, But I have oserved several work issues.

    The user can reboot, A force quit of Finder doesn't resolve this.

    Although this only appears in stacks and only in the Applications, as another way is to drag the effected app out to another stack, then drag it back.

    This works, but as to why it happen only when initially dragging it ?... No idea.

    Anyone seen this?

    Running MBP 10.6.7

    Yep, same issue here. The icon doesn't render unless I drag the App out to the desktop and then back (or unless I reboot).
    The icons of Apps downloaded from the Mac App Store render fine though.

    Don't know if it's just the newer 2011 models that got this or it is 10.6.7 specifically. What model of MBP do you have; 2010, 2011?

    2011 13"MBP 2.3ghz i5 (OS 10.6.7)

    I don't think so, coz it was also happening on my older unibody 2008 macbook with 10.6.6

    As of current, i have the 2011 based macbook pro i7

    You can resolve this in a number of ways, among them:
    • Log out and back in
    • Drag the Apps stack off your Dock and replace it by dragging the Applications folder from Finder to the Dock.
    • Use the Terminal command "killall dock"
    It happens in Leopard and Snow Leopard, as well.
