I have been trying and failing to get the icons to show up in the  
finder (for amarok).

I have put amarok.icns in Resources/  and made sure Info.plist  
specifies amarok.icns as the icon, but no dice. I have also tried  
Amarok.icns as the executable name is Amarok ). what is interesting is  
that i have the amarok icon in the doc and systray and everywhere else  
when amarok is running---just not in the finder.

any tips appreciated.
