No, it really doesn't :)

It's a little bit different as I just found out. The LoadImage API
searches the icon which matches the display color depth the closest.
Only then it tries to load the icon with the specified size!

So I changed all the menu icons from 256 colors to 32-bit colors as the
12x12 icons are (rev 8531).
