I think the problem is your icon theme doesn't have a dedicated icon for workspace-switcher. Hence, it is using a weird icon. We can possibly solve this problem by copying the default icon theme's icon for workspace-switcher and pasting it into your current icon theme.

Try the following command:

cp /usr/share/icons/unity-icon-theme/apps/48/workspace-switcher.png ~/.icons/Mac-Lion-Icons/apps/scalable


cp /usr/share/icons/unity-icon-theme/apps/48/workspace-switcher.png ~/.icons/Mac-Lion-Icons/apps/48/

Hopefully, that will solve your problem.
