Icon preview doesn't render background

Bug Description

Tested on Inkscape 0.91 r13725 on OS X 10.11.3 (15D21)

The background in "Icon Preview" (under "View" in the main menu) is always rendered as transparent, rather than rendering the document background colour.

IMO, the icon preview should accurately reflect what would appear in "Page" export, which would include rendering the document background colour. The default value for this is transparent, so would only affect the icon preview if the document has a different background colour set.

Confirmed on Xubuntu 15.10, Inkscape 0.91 and trunk rev. 14645.
Changing the background color in the document properties doesn't change the background in the Icon preview dialog (even with opaque colors).

Since introduction of this patch, all application's icons on Gtk3 build expose light rectangle. It happens with dark theme turned on. The reason not many have seen this problem is probably because it is still consider much safer to start Inkscape using default (light) theme. It might be that icons.svg file is wrongly set up, though.

Icons are stock Inkscape and the Gtk theme is Gnome's default Adwaita Dark.
