Launch and Directory Menu items icons are too small

Bug #1756612 reported by Alistair Buxton on 2018-03-17
This bug affects 3 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xfce4-panel (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

To reproduce:
    Select Adwaita theme in appearance settings.
    Drag an application item on to the panel to create a launcher.
    Right click the launcher and open properties.
    Change the icon to the circular whisker menu icon.

    The icon will be rendered at a different size to the whisker menu icon.

Again, this happens regardless of the panel size. The icon is consistently 2-3 pixels smaller, but unlike with the Applications Menu, the icon is shrunk instead of clipped.

See screenshot.

This screenshot shows the panel in 16.04 vs the panel in 18.04. Same panel size, theme, icons, font, and DPI.

With greybird everything is reversed. The Application menu/launcher/directory icons fill the panel, but the whisker menu icon is smaller. No clipping that I can see.

Adwaita has some aggressive padding in xfce4-panel. There was a update in whisker fairly recently that forced the icon padding to 0. There's probably some leftover patches in Greybird that also adjust this padding.
