Missing icon for mime-type (cause incompatibility with dapper)

Bug #63103 reported by PCMan
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
tango-icon-theme (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: tango-icon-theme

I found there is a missing mime-type icon.
There was such an icon in ubuntu dapper and other distros.
However, after upgrading to edgy, it disappeared.
I noticed that all older gnome-specific mime-type icons are linked to the new icons using new naming convention, except this one.
Please consider adding a symlink from "unknown.png" to "gnome-mime-application-octet-stream.png" to maintain backward compatibility.
Older applications using this icon now get no icon.
There is no icon naming standard now, and the draft on freedesktop.org is not widely used. So it's not a good idea to break backward compatibility easily.

Note: All icon themes provided by ubuntu lack this icon, but dapper doesn't this problem.
