I am, and I am experiencing a weird behaviour with icons: If I view a folder in the Finder "as list" (command-2), the tiny icons shown in the list are the new ones. In the "Get Info" window also these icons are shown. But if I view the same folder "as icons" (command-1) then generic text icons with the word "TEX" on them are shown!

I have rebuilt the LaunchServices database with OnyX and restarted the Finder, and the same behaviour remains.

On the other hand, with recent updates (maybe not just the latest one) a QuickLook problem has been resolved: Now by htting the space bar I can preview the contents of the .tex documents, and others. Before I couldn't (while the new icon showed itself in all views).

BTW, this happens both in a MacBook Air and in a 27" iMac.

Just curious...
