No further complaints since over 4 month. This problem seems to have disappeared.
Closing report.

I haven't seen this problem again since installing 4.4.1, can anyone confirm?

I just found that opening a file from the file browser outside of octave (e.g. a pdf, ppt, txt, etc that's not a .m, or .mat file) would cause all the icons to show up until the next time octave was opened.

I had rebuilt the icon cache before submitting the bug report, but I followed the instructions in the given link to rebuild again. The problem still exists the same way as described before.

Rebuild icon cache did not fix the problem...

I'm in Windows 10, and I see this problem in dev, 4.4.0, and 4.2.2 at least. The file icons (the ones next to the file names) in the file browser and open dialogue box will often disappear. Most of the time they don't show at all, but I found that there are some locations where all the icons show up (for example, my user folder). I have also found that if I'm in a folder where icons aren't showing and I go up to a folder where they are showing and then go back, some (not all) of the icons show up where they weren't before.
