the problem is that only the in xfce4-icon-theme, only the "Rodent" icon
theme includes those icons, and I disklike that theme.

here are the icon-packages included by Debian I installed (if I didn't
miss anything there aren't any more icon-theme packages).

just the human-icon-theme and the xfce4-icon-theme packages include the
icons the actionbuttons-plugin wants

$ dpkg -l|grep icon-theme|cut -b 1-72
ii  gnome-icon-theme                 2.14.2-2
ii  gnome-icon-theme-blankon         1.0-2
ii  gnome-icon-theme-dlg-neu         0.5-2
ii  gnome-icon-theme-gartoon         0.5-4
ii  gnome-icon-theme-nuovo           0.5-2
ii  gnome-icon-theme-suede           0.2.5-1
ii  hicolor-icon-theme               0.10-1
ii  human-icon-theme                 0.18-1
ii  tangerine-icon-theme             0.20-1
ii  tango-icon-theme                 0.7.2+cvs07.02.06-1
ii  xfce4-icon-theme                 4.4.1-1

i understand that the icons in xfce4-panel are fallback-icons, but if
there is a low-res fallback, why not also provide a high-res fallback?

"fallbacks" are intended for use if the theme in use doesn't supply the
icons by itself.. and nearly no package provides the "xfce-system-exit"
or the "xfce-system-lock" icon as you can see :(

best regards,
