doesn't seem to helpful to switch to the wrong icon. The only
reasonable options are imho these:

a) Try to use the right icon - and register the wrong icon as a fallback
so it still emits a warning that tells the user to fix their theme.

b) Deliver an icon with Xfce that you install in hi-color, so there is
always *something* even though it isn't provided by the theme.

I'm doing both in different places in Midori, ie. always a) but also b)
where I actually have an icon.
