i found why icons dont seem to display. other than hte .pic thing - missing
system mime database! no mime info. e has no clue that a .desktop file is
actually a desktop file (its actually sheer luck it has some hard-coded
extension handling that happens to at least parse the file), so somewhere along
the way it went "no idea what this is... i don't need to know to look for the
icon in the icon search path" and it didn't.

to solve, add:


and bingo. :) works. :) not sure where you want to add it, but generally this
tends to be a core system database - you may want it as a dependency of e.
what's the call here?
