Your right, it shouldn't :) I'll keep an eye out for any solution,
perhaps I can look into it a bit more in-depth on Thursday.

I rebuild the cache for both gnome (the icon theme I'm using) and
gnome-alternative (found in /usr/share/icons), yet no effect (also
restarted X). Also there's no rhythmbox icon in that folder, but these
are in /usr/share/rhytmbox/icons, no cache present there.

Perhaps, but rebuilding didn't do the trick, also, the desktop (with
issue) was installed from a netinstall cd just a few (maybe 2 or 3)
weeks after the (good) laptop install. No idea how that cache would have
got corrupted

I don't think there's one without it in current installations.

I'll have another look on Thursday, will post if I found a solution.
