comment How to fix blank icons for Download and Documents stacks in the Dock
Turned out it was a complex Excel spreadsheet in the Downloads folder that was causing the problem. Following the advice in the thread you linked to, the icons would appear if I left the stack open for long enough. Once I removed the .xls file, it all went back to normal. My guess is that Dock (or Finder) is taking too long trying to render a miniature version of the file. As you pointed out, this can happen with PDFs too.

comment iOS apps “could not be purchased at this time”
This seemed so much more logical a solution than the many "swing the phone through the air whilst dancing on one foot" theories out there, but unfortunately didn't work for me :( FWIW the download table in my SQLite DB was empty.
