Replying to myself:
Seems to me as if this issue is related to the icon theme being used.
Apparently the "Fedora" and the "Mist" icon theme expose this issue,
while others (amongst them the "Gnome", "HighContrast")
Somewhat special seems to be the oxygen icon. It seems to scale file
and dirs at the same size, but twice the size of "Gnome" ;)
So, my conclusion: The Fedora, Mist and Oxygen icon theme seem not to
harmonize well with nautilus and xfce (Read: These themes are broken).
 In xfce, try Settings->Xfce Theme Manager->Icons
Ralf, in the Nautilus
window running on Gnome, click on the middle
button on the right side of the upper panel (nine dots). There is a
slider control below the layout selection buttons at the top. Move the
slider to the left. That fixes the issue for me.
