Now we have another update, in which relevant stock icons are handled by

include replacements for all gtk stock icons.

The "cost" is about 50kB of icons, and some code to process them. I've removed 
the ability to access all current-theme icons, processing them all is too slow 
during session start-up.

Nor have I, nor heard a report of it, so I assume it's the new gtk.

No obvious reason why a config dialog would affect the filelist operation. This 
will need detailed investigation, after I get brave enough to install gtk 3.10.
