Icons don't update when default program changed

    Suppose I have a file type (such as .cpp or .vhd) that is opened by
    program X by default. Then I change the default program to Y by
    selecting "Open With...", choosing a new program, and checking "Always
    use this program". Whenever I do this, I've noticed that the icon for
    files of that type does not update to Y, but instead stays with X's
    icon. Is there a way to "refresh" the system so that it associates
    the correct icons with file types?
