I have exactly the same problem! And it appeared simultaneously on my two working machines. So maybe it's caused by a cross effect with some other software.

One program which isn't used by many people, which uses icon overlays and which is installed on both of my machines is the mozy backup client.
Does anyone of you, who experience this problem, also has mozy installed? Are there some people who use mozy and don't have icon overlay problems?
