Forcing the Finder to flush its icon cache by rebuilding the whole desktop
file is a fairly drastic thing to do, since it destroys your folders and
generally throws the desktop in disarray. A less extreme measure that seems
to work as well is to use the Resource Mover to delete all the resources but
the ones at the beginning having to do with folders. Presumably one could
just delete the ones having to do with the application being updated, but I
don't know how to figure out which those are.
