Sounds logical. Besides, the gnome theme does not work well with
standard gnome icon set since I added some ten or twenty gnomish style
icons. I will put it back under the name xfce-gnome. I an also making
xffm look for standard gnome, kde and rox icons so that those themes
will work even if the extra icons are not installed, if gnome or kde or
rox are previously installed. But we have had a series of blackouts so I
cannot do anything tonite, as I am racing against the battery to send
this mail. :-(

sleep well,
