There was a bug in the paroli packaging that might have trashed your
shr-theme ( I think it uses a different one from OM's )

To find the theme :

opkg list_installed | grep theme

It will be something like shr-theme-default or shr-illume-theme

To fix :

/etc/init.d/xserver-nodm stop
rm -rf /home/root/.e
opkg install -force-reinstall <theme from above>
/etc/init.d/xserver-nodm start

Hopefully that gets your icons back
