EVALUATION

According to the msdn article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/895561
It mentions the following and it seems to be an known issue:
"Additionally, the View x86 Control Panel Icons item in Control Panel displays only icons that do not have a corresponding x64 Control Panel item. For example, if an x64 Control Panel item has the same name as an x86 Control Panel item, the icon for that x86 Control Panel item will not appear in the View x86 Control Panel Icons Control Panel item. "

The above article also describes a workaround as follows:
Click Start, click Run, type the following in the Open box, and then click OK:
Drive_Letter:\windows\syswow64\control.exe file_name.cpl
e.g. C:\windows\syswow64\control.exe javacpl.cpl

Further investigation shows that applying the fix for 6641731 for Vista also fixes the problem on XP 64-bit. The fix involves registering the Java Control Panel in the windows registry and not copying the javacpl.cpl file into the windows\syswow64 directory.
