[Interest] buttons getting icons on Mac OS

I noticed that when you add the location of a standard Freedesktop-compliant icon theme to the icon theme search path (say in an app bundle's Resources folder), and set the system icon theme name to an installed icon theme, buttons of the native Macintosh theme all of a sudden show icons on Mac OS. This is regardless of how DialogButtonBoxButtonsHaveIcons is set.

Looking at the code it seems that the Mac theme usually doesn't show button and menu icons because icon-from-theme look-ups fail, not because the ButtonsHaveIcons hint is set to No.

Is this intentional or just a case of lazy programming?
