I can't help you, but I have been wondering about this feature myself...
Well, I know how to change it, but I don't know how to make my own icon for it.

You can create .ico files with Microangelo. Google for ResHack to open the Game.exe and replace the existing .ico resource file with yours when you're done.

In fact normal icons are the same as png. .ico > .png, though. .ico files can be icon libraries that have more than one icon (which is actually the case with the icon in the Game.exe).

Microangelo, should try that one sometime. I use Irfanview to make/view/rip icons.
Do you like ambient/electronic music? Then you should promote a talented artist! Help out here. (I'm serious. Just listen to his work at least!)
