Some icons won't stay in my dock when I drag them from the applications folder, but others will.

I have tried the following without success:

-gone to library/preferences and deleted com.apple.dock.plist then done a restart

-gone to library/preferences and deleted com.apple.dock.db then done a restart

-gone to library/preferences and deleted com.apple.DiskUtility.plist then done a restart

 

-used disc utility to repair permissions

 

-opened an application from the applications folder then whilst the icon is in the dock used right click.options/keep in dock

 

-deselected dock synchronisation from mobile me sync

 

None of these measures work though iPhoto & iTunes are not affected by the problem.

 

The only workaround I have found is to create an alias of an application and drag this to the dock where it does stay put.

 

Can anyone suggest anything else?
