Bug Description

Binary package hint: avant-window-navigator

Since I started using the karmic trunk version of AWN I am unable to select an icon when creating or editing a launcher. When I click on the icon in the Desktop Entry Editor I am presented with a .png in my /home folder under from File (that has been deleted over a week ago), but when I click the radio button to select icons from the current theme I am presented with an empty window (see attachments). The issue occurs regardless of which GTK theme I am using.

Ubuntu Version: 9.10 (beta/RC, with all updates as of 11am EDT today)
AWN Version: Avant Window Navigator 0.3.9-rewrite-bzr1605-karmic1-1

1. Launch AWN-trunk
2. Open Awn Settings
3. Go to the Launchers pane and either click Add or select an existing launcher and click Edit
4. If adding a new launcher insert the appropriate information into the fields
5. Click the icon button
6. The Desktop Entry Editor opens with the From File panel

1. Click the From Theme radio button
2. Select the desired icon from the icons available in the active GTK theme

1. Click the From Theme radio button
2. No icons are presented from active GTK theme

Adding screenshot using the Dust Sand theme that shipped with Ubuntu 9.10 (beta/RC). Would also include a screenshot showing the Mac4Lin_Aqua theme (my normal theme) but it shows the same result.

Note related to the package in Ubuntu proper.

Well, technically you can select an icon category from the dropdown, but that's obviously not a discoverable action. What I'm going to attempt to do when I get some coding time is to have it default to a dropdown entry that says "Select Category" (which cannot be selected).

You read my mind, Mark. Once I was able to select an icon from the theme again I was going to see if I needed to file a bug against what a PITA it [was|is] to find a specific icon amongst the semi-sorted listing. I always hated having to muddle my way through the icons trying to find the one I wanted. I look forward to seeing your fix in the nightly updates.

Yeah, pretty much the only reason why it's currently blank is because it takes a little time to load a category, and I didn't want to incur that cost when someone initially selects "From Theme".
