	Oooh ! :-) that is only on master I hope :-)

	No - that is just silly. On the other hand - if there is a toolbar icon
without an image - then we should indeed have the missing-image image
there - so it is not just a grey rectangle (I think). [ Or should we ? -
there are some text only toolbar pieces in eg. the print preview mode ].
Hmm; perhaps we really don't want the placeholder icons in this location
at all.

	Yep; that's the right fix. Clearly we got a bit over-enthusiastic in
this place.

	Thanks !
