  I am also not happy with the abuse of the "dialog-ok" icon. Though currently from the existing icons in the Breeze (and Oxygen) icon sets I would favour it over the "search" icons for these reasons:
  - it is unique in its use, one cannot mix it up with the search actions when scanning the menus and toolbars just by icons
  - the checkmark symbol used in the icons in both icon sets still is semantically close enough to "checking something". Cmp. also the logo of Cppcheck, which contains a checkmark as well.
  I would have filed a request with the KDE icon designers for a new dedicated icon for "Analyze" reflecting the process and its open result nature, but seems there is currently no-one around or interested enough in work for kdevelop icons ( see old requests https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=376248, https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=379349), so I have not yet looked into that direction :(
  Perhaps someone with more energy left for this (and/or better social skils :) ) could get in contact with the icon designers again now.
