A long time ago, in a gala^W^W^WGTK+ was not icon theme-aware. And then, one day, it became aware. It was a nice step, but it needed some more work to be developer-friendly. GTK+ 2.6 brought some developer-friendliness since it was now possible to let GTK+ handle icon theme changes for the windows and images. But there were still some areas where improvements were possible.

Then, Christian Neumair came and said: "I shall fix this". And he fixed it.

Christian, you are my hero of the past week.
