Could you please get together and add this at least to gnome.mk?  It
hurts Gnome users resulting in application crashes.  (Now I don't agree
neither that applications should crash upon missing icons, but still
it is the case with e.g. f-spot.)

The icon caches already *get* generated, so not updating them is wrong.

Kind regards,
