Package: xfce4-settings
Version: 4.6.5-1
Severity: minor

This was already discussed on the xfce-pkg-devel mailing list and IRC. 
The issue is that a default icon theme is not set. 

This causes many icons to be missing after an installation of the xfce4 package 
and the icon set used by a desktop=xfce installation to be GNOME.

The fix was to change the IconThemeName in /etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xsettings.xml to "Tango"
