The ones that work are the real butt-ugly ones :-(

This was working with nice icons up until the point where the icon
display code got changed for Vista. That work was done by Adam
Strzelecki and the relevant mails are here:

He does indeed point out bugs found in Win2K, although I thought they
had been worked around. Maybe the workaround is missing for the folder
background?

I don't know how many people are still using Win2K. I am using it a
lot less now, and there are very few people on the dev list who do.
But when we release 1.5.0 there will be much greater exposure and this
may be seen as a regression. Personally I don't mind too much if Win2K
reverts to text only - better than no text at all. If it is a lot of
work to debug, there are certainly more important things to look at.
But there may be be a backlash later and some "BUG!!!!!" reports ;-)
