Since it's been ignored for the past year and some days, I've just
prompted for status as the problem still exists in 1.7.0. If no

I believe this is not a bug, but a misconfiguration with the exception
of icons in GDM.

On my last build, I had symlinked /opt/gnome/share/icons ->
../../../usr/share/icons prior to installing any gnome packages.
