Windows 7: Anyone ever get empty preview thumbnails?

Anyone ever get empty preview thumbnails?

On taskbar preview thumbnails, usually you get to see the content inside the window. Sometimes, however, and I'm unsure of the situation that causes it, the thumbnail will not be there, but you end up with just a blank box with the program's icon inside. The way to fix this is to make active that particular window, and then the thumbnail will refresh itself. Is this normal behavior?

I've seen it on rare occasions. Couldn't tell you why though.
