I found the source of the problem: "gnome-settings-daemon" wasn't
running. This program looks in the gconf database for the Gnome icon
theme and sends according XSETTINGS which are interpreted by GTK+ 2
programs such as beagle-search to theme themselves. Without
"gnome-settings-daemon", GTK+ programs only look at gtkrc files.
However, my "~/.gtkrc-2.0" file didn't contain any theme info. So some
default theme was used which didn't have the spinner icon.
In order to get a theme without having to run "gnome-settings-deamon", I
added the following line to my "~/.gtkrc-2.0":
gtk-icon-theme-name = "Industrial"
Everything is fine now. :-)
