  Thanks Neil.  I can't imagine anyone on this list being unaware that 
Vivid is unstable!  I have Utopic available on a separate hard-drive as 
a dual boot fallback, and all data is synced between the two drives.  I 
always use the unstable testing version for day-to-day use until it 
folds.  It is then a simple job to re-install or repair, but I can use 
the stable version for regular work.

This way, I can spot and report things like the icon bug which won't 
show up on a single testing use such as with testdrive.

With regard to Simon Greenwood's suggestion, icons are stable and OK on 
the desktop itself, so I think it unlikely that installing Plank would 
help.  As always, I am reluctant to deviate from the 'out of the box' 
offering so I don't miss any problems that occur within the new 
version.  If no one has any other suggestions, I'll report it as a Unity 
bug, and let someone else move it to an upstream issue if necessary.

Regards,        Barry.
