Recycle Bin icon will not show empty without manual screen refresh

I am using Windows Vista Ultimate (x86).

I accidently deleted my Desktop Recycle Bin.

I restored it (Control Panel/Personalise/Change Desktop Icons).

I clicked on the Recycle Bin (Full) icon and then clicked on Default.

I repeated this operation on Recycle Bin (Empty)

Now, whenever I delete file(s) the Recycle bin shows "Full" and when I
right-click and select Empty Recycle Bin it emptys BUT the icon does NOT
change to show an empty Recycle bin but stays as a Recycle Bin (Full).

The ONLY way I can make the icon display the correct status is to manually
force the change by a screen refresh (or F5).

Any ideas how I can restore the situation to default normal where the full
bin, when emptied, will change to bin empty?
