Well, snapshotting an icon on OS3.9 converts it to an OS3.9 icon, which cannot be displayed by OS3.1 or NewIcons. So it reverts back to the 4-color icon which is still stored in the icon file. Unfotunately most NewIcons icons have this 4-color icon replaced by a little dot to save some space.

AFAIK there is no easy way to convert the icons back from OS3.9 icons to NewIcons, so they can be displayed correctly. The icons should show correctly when icon.library V44 is active (the one which comes with OS3.5+). Then you can convert them back using a program on Aminet. Don't remember the name. It needs both the new icon.library and the original newicon.library installed at the same time.
