Are you using the GNOME desktop, or KDE?  When I was using KDE, I had 
various random applications lose their icons after they got updated, 
most notably firefox, thunderbird.  It stayed over reboots also, and to 
get the icon images back, I had to remove the icons from the launcher 
area and re-add them again.  They sometimes would disappear again when 
rebooting also.

I haven't encountered that in GNOME yet though.
