Should I mention what app? I guess it's the same library call because
dialog looks the same everywhere. My observations: kbuildsycoca4
doesn't rebuild icon-cache.kcache. Sometimes relogin helps, sometimes
doesn't. Sometimes it doesn't even change icon preview after Select
Icon dialog. Anyway, it is expected that it should work without any
relogins and cache rebuilds, hence it is a bug. Bug was already
submitted (335569).
