I think it reasonable for them to only distribute the source for those
parts for which they distribute the binary. In this case the icons
probably count as both the source and binary (although, see "preferred
form of modification", which is unclear for icons) and so you have no
further complaint.

Of course you may still be annoyed that they are running a modified
version without sending you the modifications, but this is allowed.
