Thank you for your bug report, did you change some settings to display icons in menus? Does it happen in a guest session? What icon theme do you use?

Changed in nautilus (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Low
status: New → Incomplete

# No I did not change any settings to display icons in menus. It just broke after upgrade to oneiric.
# Guest session: the guest session does not have any icons. I can't find any option in the preferences to enable it, so I don't remember how I enabled it in my session. I must have somehow enabled it a long time ago, probably in gutsy or hardy even...
# Icon theme: Ambience. Note that I had to manually reset this theme after upgrade. In natty, I also used Ambience, but after
upgrade to oneiric was screwed up: everything looked ugly. So I manually had to reset the theme to Ambience again.

I figured out why the guest session doesn't have icons. I noticed in the Configuration Editor that I have "desktop/gnome/interface/menu_items_have_icons" set to "true", but in the guest session this is set to "false". Even when I set this to "true" in the guest session, it still doesn't show any icons.

Some icons are available only in gnome-icon-theme-full. Bug 877451 is about moving those icons to default installation of gnome-icon-theme.
