Maybe fvwm is not happy with the zero size.
What happens if you put a file with a picture there ?

Did you already try searches like

   find /usr -name mini.xterm_48x48.xpm

Does "live window screenshot" mean that the icon is willing to execute
blindly toggled shell commands ? 
I experienced such a problem with Debian 8. Without any Style "XTerm"
i got an "icon" which was indeed an active terminal with unreadble text.

I fixed this by these lines in .fvwm2rc (dunno where i learned them):

  Style "XTerm"           IconOverride
  Style "XTerm"           Icon display.xpm

The icon pixmap is probably
but the same one is also in

Have a nice day :)
