Desktop icon labels all went away

I was editing the Title attribute of songs in a music folder when suddenly it wouldn't let me click to edit anymore. Right after that, I noticed all the labels for my desktop icons were just - (hypens). Tried many things to get the labels back (restarting tracker among them). Ultimately this cleared things.
hey Tracker quit ; rm -rf ~/Desktop ; /system/Tracker
Note that while experimenting, I moved all the icons except Disks and Trash temporarily into a new folder inside home. So the attached zipped file doesn't contain all my usual icons. diver suggested I zip this up and share it in this ticket. His speculation on the cause of this problem was:
"probably some wrong handling of attributes causes the Tracker to get into an invalid state"
So, hope it helps solve whatever bug caused this oddity!
