Yes, they are. But it is easy to find other cases; this is from SciTE
source file gtk/pixmapsGNOME.h:

The icons can be downloaded from
http://sourceforge.net/projects/icon-collection/, since the main site

Web pages, or any other form of image collection without my consent.  I
ask that if you do use them to drop
me some e-mail at dean@gallant.com, also, if a screen shot of your
application using these icons is available I
will add a link to it from this page. I would please me greatly if you
would add a little blurb in something like a
``Help about..'' screen like:
