seems to be exactly what I was looking for.
But as comment 13 states this behaivor changed in the latest update (but only 
for KDE icons).

And I would really like to have an option to actually choose the size of the 
icons as the icons are currently way to big for my taste, but I don't want to 
shrink my Panel because I really like two line window titles.
With the 22px default as it was before the icons where nicely arranged in two 
rows of small icons and everything was find for me, as I have good eyes :P. 
Don't get me wrong here I really think that supporting high DPI displays is a 
good thing but I still want to be able to change the default behaivor. This is 
one thing I like about KDE that almost everything can be configured.
So if anyone has an Update on this I would really like to heare about it.
