    This happens using the Aptana icon too. To correct, simply copy the image, scale it to 48x48 and link to that one instead.

    [edit] As Kostkon below mentions, and I'd forgotten to mention here, change it to a PNG file.

    Also convert it to png, just to be on the safe side. Or just google for one.

    Sorry, yes, what Kostkon said, I forgot to mention that. I'll edit my post if I can.

    Haha! Are you sure they didn't do that on purpose? It's pretty apropos that a program called "Eclipse" has an icon so large that it gets in the way of surrounding icons and its own name.
