I am not seeing this with XM 1.10. There appears to be some sort of icon caching, so forcing a clean and / or using the command "killall Dock" to restart the doc may be necessary to refresh the icon in question.

See this SO question to generate an icon:

I have checked this issue and this issue is working fine with Xam.mac

Hence closing this issue.
