No, never saw that command before and never needed it. I fixed all the other
icons by just placing the correct file into my icon theme’s directory and
restarting xfce-mcs-manager. Ran gtk-update-icon-cache now just in case but did
not get any different result. Only a warning when trying to force the refresh:

This is also something which I never needed before. The other icons do work
after all …
