(Much the way bushes sometimes look on initial login before they get textures)

Issue isn't the fact that the icon goes white, it is that the beam for the flashlight is no longer cast, and instead turns into a flat polygon.

This happens for every item that has a hotbar slot and is then removed, not just flashlights. The item icon becomes white. Which is totally OK, so you know what item used to be in that slot and can put it back there if needed.
If you want to get rid of the white icon, just put something else in the slot or drag&drop the icon off the hotbar.
(I hope I understood the issue correctly, I never had a flashlight in my hotbar. Sorry if I got it wrong)

looks def. weird.
