If you're using gtk 2.8+, make sure the icon cache file is up to date
for Nuvola.

If it is, please try something like this:

GtkIconTheme *icon_theme = gtk_icon_theme_get_default();
if(gtk_icon_theme_has_icon(icon_theme, "network"))
    g_print("icon exists\n");
    g_print("icon doesn't exist\n");

If you get "icon doesn't exist", then it's a problem with your system,
not Xfce.
