I just purchased a new MacBook Pro Retina and am noticing a bug with Mission Control.  When I go to Mission Control to see all of the different windows I have open, it's showing just the app icons, NOT the actual app windows.  This occurs sporadically; sometimes it works properly, and sometimes it doesn't.  I actually realzied the same issue on my MacBook Pro (2009) after upgrading to Mountain Lion a few weeks ago, therefore it seems to be an OS issue and not a HW issue. 


Here is a screen shot of what I see when Mission Control is not working properly:

Instead of those icons, it should be showing the actually windows within those apps that I have open. 


Any ideas?

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
