!  3- change the aterm Icon in the database to Icon2. 
!  4- Update all.
!  5- Iconify it. It has Icon1.

	Ah ha, you are correct sir, it doesn't change the images of
existing icons...

!  because we did different experiments, right ?

	..ah ha, but it's the fact that you are observing it, which is
therefore influencing the outcome. :)  Did I mention I love reading about
Quantum theory. (:
