Bug Description

After upgrading to Xenial, vim-gtk icon is not shown properly. ("?" is shown alternatively.)

From the short examination of the current source package, the cause of this problem is that the icon file name specified in .desktop file (located in runtime/gvim.desktop) is "gvim" but actual pixmap files are named as "vim".

So, please modify .desktop file or rename icon file names.
Personally, the latter solution is preferred since the .desktop file is named as "gvim".

The .desktop file was provided by Debian package maintainers previously, but now this file is provided in the original source repo and is used in Xenial alternatively. This caused this conflict.
