Changing deleted items icon through properties only allows 1 icon for full & empty status

Bug #263772 reported by StormtrooprDave
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-applets (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

If i change an icon theme completely the deleted items icon has a full icon and an empty icon.

If I right click on the deleted items icon, select properties and click the icon to change it manually I can only select one icon. There is no option to change the full icon and the empty icon, so now I have an icon that shows it to be permanently full even when it is empty.

If I go to properties, click the icon and select Revert, it goes back to having a full and empty icon, as per the current theme.

I'm not sure if this is a bug or a missing feature but if I want to change the icon through the properties menu it should give an option to manually select the icon for a full bin and an empty bin.

Ubuntu release 8.04.1 hardy
Lernel Linux 2.6.24-19-generic
Gnome 2.22.3

gnome-desktop is a library and the gnome-about dialog and not the right component there, reassigning to gnome-applets but that's not really the applet job either
