    [Gtk] Alt-Tab hi-res icons work only for .desktop files?

    Hi,
    In the Alt+Tab list of currently running app icons a hi-res version of an app icon is only displayed if the app has an associated .desktop file (which specifies the icon, say, "icon-name").

    The older/general way of setting the icon:
    PHP Code:
    myWindow->set_icon(Gtk::IconTheme::get_default()->load_icon("icon-name",
            
    128Gtk::ICON_LOOKUP_USE_BUILTIN)); 
    displays a lower-res (blurred) icon in the Alt-Tab menu regardless of the resolution of the loaded icon (in this case a 128x128 icon). Can it be fixed other than with a .desktop file? Is it a Unity/gtk bug or a policy?
