This is an OS X glitch, which does not update the file correctly after
it has been created. My favorite method is to Get Info on your new app,
click on the icon in the little box, and hit the delete key. They forces
the Finder to update the file's appearance.
Another method is to zip the file, throw away the original, and then
unzip. The Finder will update the icon when the app is decompressed.
A third method is to issue an AppleScript command. The command is
"update" and you provide a file path.
I usually use method #1 which is by far the easiest.
