I used the ones provided by "apt-get source gtk" on a dapper install.
And of course built the package with the patch.

That's because it needs the 000_pathbar_localization.patch to be
applied before. I sent it in a previous mail.

Hmm, I wasn't being clear (as usual). The icon I made was just to test
it, and though the testfilechooser app and Nautilus (among others) use
the test icon I made, yet when I opened gedit to test my patch with
its filechooser, the icon wasn't used.

I'll answer better (I hope) to the icon things in the next mail, anyways...
