 Thanks for the report, now I start investigating...
 It seems to be introduced in 0.0.20090224-1 as debian/patches/023_fix_desktop_file

 I guess it was intended to adjust for Debian menu policy, it says "The icons
 should be in xpm format."

 But it is for Debian menu, not for *.desktop file.

 I suggest that 
  - remove its patch
  - adjust icon directory in /usr/share/pixmaps

 If it's okay, I'll commit to svn.
