Missing Thunar icon w. Paper theme in Buster

There seems to be an issue when using the Paper icon theme with Thunar and Tint2 on Debian Buster. Some people report that the file manager task bar icon reverts to a generic square, not the correct directory icon:

I haven't yet seen an icon theme I like better than Paper. It's ...restful.
But that Thunar icon thing is an Issue that I was going to bring up eventually, if it didn't fix itself, as these things sometimes do.

There's no such problem on Debian Stretch, even with the same Paper build (I think - that's something I should check) so it might be Thunar...

Has anyone else noticed this?

Agreed, I love Paper. But I've given up using it in Buster, I'm bitten by that bug almost every time using xfce4-panel.

Interesting. I just switched to Dolphin and the Paper folder icon opened consistently in my panel 40 times in a row. What in the world is going on here?

Buster + tint2 + openbox + using Paper icons: no problem here with Thunar icon.

Whenever I try other icon themes, I always end up reverting to Paper wink

I'm going to go back and have another look. Strange that hhh and I both see missing Thunar icons, but not Damo.

Le bug avec xfce4-panel. Playing with the panel width might fix it, but it's not a priority for me ATM to troubleshoot it yet. It hasn't occurred with any other icon theme I've used on lithium.

Oops, forgot le scrot...

BTW, a side issue that we could fix in Paper-Bunsen is the missing "zero volume" icon in xfce4-notifyd (see the last scrot)...
