Package: libgtk-3-0
Version: 3.14.5-1+deb8u1
Followup-For: Bug #798208

I've identified the patch applied to the 8.2 release that causes this bug. It's listed in the 
changelog for the package as the following:

  * Added patch backported from upstream for one annoying bug:
    - debian/patches/081_fix_huge_icons.patch (Closes: #773135)

This patch should be reverted in my opionion as they traded one annoying problem for some users 
only to give another annoying problem to other users. This might need to be reported back to the 
original bug report with gtk on their bug tracker as it looks like they're unaware of the 
problems this patch has caused, bug report here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=741259 
According to the bug report this patch was made to scale down icons in poorly made icon themes.
