I posted on this topic a little while back ( a month or 2 from memory ).
icon theme you're using has to have icons of the same name that you're
trying to use. If you're using a 'default' ( eg adwaita ) icon theme in
conjunction with icon names that used to work a couple of years ago,
likely to have issues. Either choose an older icon theme, or migrate to
new 'best practices'.

Problem is I am not running under GNOME. I have KDE4 installed on my
machine and
I'm trying to port the GTK2 app to work with GTK3.

I don't use KDE, but I recommend using Gnome, at least until you're on top
of these issues. Read up on the ways of setting your icon theme if you're
not going to use Gnome. I don't use Gnome either, by the way ( and so I
know what it's like to get gtk+ to play nicely outside it ).

I'm a big enthusiast for Gtk in general but this is one reason why I prefer Gtk 2 for cross-platform usage (though I'm mostly OK with Gtk 3 on gnome-aware Linux). As of version 2, Gtk used to be completely gnome-independent.
