desktop icons dissapear

i don't know how many of you encountered this bug in RTM (maybe it's only me) but the desktop icons sometimes (1 of 3 boots) doesn't show on desktop.

you need to go to view>show desktop icons, and they reappear.
anybody got this bug too? any solution found to this?

This happened all the time in the RC for me. I haven't seen it yet in the RTM (been running the RTM since 8/7/09).
