Upgrading shared-mime-info to 0.70 version breaks all icon display on my system (pidgin icons, application icons inside kde, gtk-demo "Icon View Basics" example.
informations about rebuilding mime does not work because the directory does not exists. Since it really breaks things, I suggest that the message is put in "warning" inside the ebuild.
Upgrading libpng and/or gtk+ and/or pidgin does not solve the problem
Downgrading shared-mime-info immediatly fixed the problem.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to shared-mime-info-0.70
2. Launch gtk-demo "Icon View Basics" tabs
3. enjoy the error message
