Question marks in Linked table manager

Can someone tell me why sometimes a  ?   (question mark icon) appears in front of the linked tables in the linked table manager rather than the normal datasheet icon?
The ? icon appears most frequently when I link my tables using code.  There appears to be no difference in how the tables function, just a different icon.  To view a picture of what I mean, click the link below.

Odd, never seen it. Probably not, but maybe the icons are messed up (try rebuilding shelliconcache).

I just thought the Q interesting enough as I haven't seen those "?" icons either.
Also the rebuilding shelliconcache could be a solution...
How did you solve it, just a re-install ?

The ? mark seems to appear anytime I link to a Password Protected database.  I would be interested to know if other Experts get the same results when they link to a password protected database.
