You have to wait for your device to read the SD card. Once finishes, the icons will come out.

I did not move any apps to SD card. But I had the same problem as you did when I tried just now.

However, overheating and rapid battery drain are fixed.

Agree!
And the apps that are on your external SD card do not dissapear! Only the shortcuts on the launcher.
I believe that the time the apps load on boot is higher for the one on the sd card. And the launcher see icons without apps and deletes them!

So if you have a lot of sd apps shortcuts on your launcher you will have to put them every boot!

I just bought the Xperia M2 and have the same problem. It is really annoying. I am now considering returning it. I have a 2 year old Acer phone which doesn't have this problem using the same SD card. Not sure why Sony can't handle this.

I am able to temporarily fix the issue by using Go Launcher instead of the stock sony one. Shame that Sony didn't come up with a solution yet.
