If it makes you feel any better I'm having the same problem after installing a fresh version of chrome (18.0.1025.152 m). No idea how to fix it, but this problem is killing my productivity.

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

For what it's worth, i came around this problem:

1) Right click in the shortcut or the pinned item itself.
2) Select Properties from the displayed menu.
3) Go to the Compatibility Tab.
4) Select the Windows Vista Compatibility Mode (or whatever works for you)

That's about it, now I only have one icon.
Remember from time to time to check the updates for Google Chrome in case they solve this on their own, I'm not much of a fan of compatibility mode.

It's kinda a janky solution (posted above), but it works.
