If I remember correctly, that error has to do with NM not finding the
icons it needs.  Try running 'find /usr/share/icons -type d -maxdepth 1
-mindepth 1 -exec gtk-update-icon-cache -f {} \;' and see if that fixes
it.  You might need to logout/in as well.

I've got a more up-to-date snapshot over at BreakMyGentoo you might
wanna try if that fails...
