Hi Barry,

Can you upload the screenshot to something like photobucket or imageshack.

Some things to try: try other desktops like unity-2d. Do you still have the
issue on newly created icons? Still an issue after a reboot? Have you tries
previous kernerl versions from the grub menu? Any recent updates?
