Again, I'm at work now, but maybe try this:

Put into ~/.gtkrc-2.0 (or create it if missing):
gtk-icon-theme-name = "Bluecurve" <-change Bluecurve to your prefered icon theme
Other option is to start gnome-settings-daemon, but AFAIK you would have to kill xfce-settings-daemon first, which is not good solution.

Hope this helps
