Need help on missing Dia shape icons

I just installed the "dia" package, dia starts up fine but immediately gives me a warning:

failed to load icon for file
cause=Couldn't recognize the image file format for file '/usr/share/dia/shapes/Flowchart/display.png'

and also tells me there are 49 more messages.

I looked in /usr/share/dia/shapes/Flowchart/ and found a listing of the various shapes, including "display.png" and "display.shape". In other words, both the .png and .shape files are there for all the shapes.

On the screen, the place where you'd normally see a small icon of the shape is a placeholder with a red X in the center. All kinds of them.

Clicking and dragging one of the placeholder X icons to the working screen, the shape/symbol is OK. Just cannot see what the shape is until doing that. So I assume the shape/symbol is OK, just the icon file (.png) cannot be found.

Using Wheezy, up to date, i386 version.

I'm not a newbie to Linux, but not a guru either. Dia looks like a fine program for my needs. Any help or hints on solving the missing icons would be appreciated. Am I missing some packages or files? I've gone thru the list on the Debian package page for dia and all seems OK.

[Not to confuse the issue, but I have another problem with synaptic that popped up a couple weeks ago. In the file window, the "supported" symbols (the Debian swirl) and the little box indicating installed or not are missing in those two columns. I only mention this here in case this problem is related to the missing icons above. Synaptic does not give any error message and works fine otherwise.]
