Not, it's not :-)

(I mean, not happening here, in lenny)

Some tests/questions:

- Does this also happen on local (non-usb) and empty folders?
- Does this happen if you select the "double-click method" (just for 
testing purposes)?
- Does it happen if you login with another fresh-created user?

There was only once that I experienced weird things with icons but was on 
a virtual machine running virtualbox. I updated the kernel on that VM and 
forgot to update "guest additions" which gave something like you are 
seeing now (mouse cursor not detecting the object it was over).
