I've noticed that when running compiz (aka "Desktop Effects") if the
window is "hanging off" slightly to one side - that is to say one or
more of the sides extends beyond the workspace - then the icon
disappears from the workspace switcher.  If you maximize the window,
it should "snap" to the workspace, returning the icon.
