This is a bug in lintian.  It should be requiring the /usr/share/pixmaps
path now for unqualified icon pathnames.

However, that doesn't explain why you're getting that message, since
lintian does check in /usr/share/pixmaps (even though the long description
of the tag is wrong).  Are you sure the icon is present in that directory?
