In anticipation of the corresponding upstream change, I have just
a change to the GConf schemas in libgnome to not show icons in menus and
buttons by default anymore.
This change may take a little while to get used to, but I hope that most
people will come around and appreciate the less cluttered desktop.
I expected this change to be more a to shock to the end user
turned out to be.The feed back I received was that having icons in
"Places" felt out of place to the rest of the menu. The only solutions
to that problem when asked was to either bring back all the icons or
move either applications in "Places" or place "Places" in whole under
"Applications" or "System" so the path to it would be Application
Places or System --> Places.
Hope this feedback is somewhat helpful
