Themis, in Finder->View->Show View Options, is "Show icon preview" checked? It sounds like you're getting a thumbnail icon from Quick Look.

If not, you may want to try some of the debugging steps in my UTI whitepaper.


Notably, the mdls command to view the type, and the lsregister dump command will allow you to examine the registry and see what the OS is using for the file type and icon.
