idesk icon problem

I'm using idesk on Slackware with Icewm.
I've got a number of icon files in ~/.idesktop/
All are showing fine except one I added later than the rest:

table Icon
Caption: Mozilla Thunderbird
ToolTip.Caption: Run Mozilla Thunderbird
Icon: /usr/share/pixmaps/thunderbird.png
Width: 36
Height: 36
X: 36
Y: 252
Command[0]: ( /usr/bin/thunderbird )

It just doesn't show up. Any idea why?

Does it have the same permissions and the other files. If you've created this file as root by accident, then the iDesk program may not have read access to the file. I've never had this problem with iDesk, so this is the only thing I can think of (and its probably not going to help).

Good Luck,

Yes, the permissions are ok.
