     Icons and themes are looked for in a set of directories. By
-    default, apps should look in $HOME/.icons, /usr/share/icons and
-    /usr/share/pixmaps (in that order). Applications may further add
+    default, apps should look in $XDG_DATA_DIRS/icons, /usr/share/pixmaps
+        and for backwards compatibility in $HOME/.icons (in that order).

That order isn't right. Then /usr/share/pixmap (crap super-old fallback
icons) are used before ~/.icons.
