With gtk+-2.6, there has been a utility added called gtk-update-icon-cache. If you've ever noticed
that your menus are slow to populate with icons, then you can significantly improve this with the new icon
cache program. The quickest way to do this is:

Code:

root@home root # cd /usr/share/icons/
root@home icons # for i in `find -type d -maxdepth 1`; do gtk-update-icon-cache $i; done;


Note that there is still room for improvement here. If anyone out there needs a project, I believe there
is a GNOME bounty out there to implement a cache feature for the icons themselves (right now the cache
file holds directory structure information) The url for the bounty is: http://www.gnome.org/bounties/Memory.html#169344
