I did the following:
- Window7 Professional, OOo 3.3 installed.
--> install AOO 3.4.1, r1367911
--> icons are visible

- Window7 Home Premium in VM, clean installation.
--> install AOO 3.4.1, r1367911
--> icons are visible

Thus, I can not reproduce the "missing icon" defect in the above scenarios.

I will perform the following use case:
- Windows7 Home Premium in VM, clean installation.
- install AOO 3.4
--> install AOO 3.4.1, r1367911

Stay tuned for the result.

Best regards, Oliver.
