I'd like to get the icon for the current front process.  I've gotten a
process info record using GETPROCESSINFO and have a few routines that
someone gave us for getting icons from the Finder desktop database.
Trouble is, the OS keeps returning error -35 (volume not found) when I pass
it the volRefNum% that is found in the FSpec record for the process (as
pointed to by the pAppSpecPtr& field of the process info record).

Is there an easy way to get the icon, or do I have to bury my head in file
manager manuals for a few hours?  I like the Mac, but the file system
drives me crazy.
