            Bug ID: 406661
           Summary: konsole version 19.04.0 - compiled just now. Does the
                    display of icons no longer work?
           Product: konsole
           Version: master
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: REPORTED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: tabbar

  Target Milestone: ---

I am not sure if I have found a bug/regression or not.

So here is the behaviour:

In KDE konsole 18.12.3 when I send this to a tab:


I get the terminal-icon that appears to be the default,
on the left hand side of the tab at hand.

IF I do the very same on KDE konsole 19.04.0, no permanent
change appears to happen. Something appears to flicker but
then seems to be instantly reset.

The net result is that on konsole 19.04.0 I am not able to
change the icon, whereas on konsole 18.12.3.

I do not know if this is a bug or not or some side effect.
Although I think IF this is indeed how I describe, then I
think this is a bug; or a regression. IF it is a deliberate
change, it may be useful to mention it in the official 
announcement, and suggest to users how to change or what
to change in order to be able to change the icon.

I should perhaps also explain how I found out:

- I noticed that each tab now has a close button and I wanted
to try this out. I tried it out and realized that I do not
like this functionality because it occupies too much space
per tab (I use a custom .css file for the kde konsole tabs,
to visually distinguish between active tabs and inactive tabs,
and I use lots of icons for different kde konsole tabs, via
some ruby script. I then looked at editing kde konsole settings
and there is, thankfully, a setting that allows us to disable
the close button per tab. I did this, and then I tried to 
use another icon on the kde konsole tab and it did not work.
Not sure if this is just me or whether this is indeed a bug,
but I can guarantee to 100% that this behaviour works on 
18.x 100%. It does not seem to work on 19.x, at the least not
with my testing so far - didn't test it for long evidently since
the kde application release is out since only a few hours or so
at best.
