Unfortunally yes - I told them quite some times before the final release
and all the xfce guys told me was "use another icon theme". I then made
the Tango theme a build dependency and changed the default xml files
delivery by xfce4-conf to select this icon theme. When you have already
an installation, you have probably still Rodent configured which is gone
now. Please call the Settings Manager, Choose "Appearance", The icon tab
and then select "Tango" as Icon theme. This will bring you most of the
icons back (not all of course...).

This is correct.

I don't.

I hope you've read the text I output on x11-wm/xfce4 installation about
configuring PolicyKit as well for having the ability to reboot/shutdown
the system from inside xfce4.
