I can only echo this. On my system when the icons are gone from menus,
the menus still

really ugly.


If that indenting could be fixed it probably wouldn't look so alien,
but as it stands, it's horrible.
I've been running a gtkrc to remove button images for ages though, so
I really won't miss those.
