Obviously moving them back would solve the problem. I'm in the habit of keeping most apps (unless they have a widget I use) on the SD. Although space isen't much of an issue with the RAZR I have the habit from my previous android where it was.

In any case there isen't a "problem" per se with the the shortcut other than the icon won't load unless the launcher crashes and comes back (at which time they load normally). My prevrous android was an HTC and it didn't have this issue. My wife currently has a rezound and it doesn't have this issue. This is not endemic to android, it's something Motorola is doing wrong.

Is there any soution to this (i. e. make it work properly) rather than the work around of just not using app to SD?

Does anyone know which app to force close to get the GUI to reload or a way to refresh it manually?
