This happens every time because oxygen-icons doesn't keep a
proper 4.6 branch. Last time it happened with the new MIME
type icons, which was also a glaring release quality issue.
It's clearly not intentional either; the artwork team was
very unhappy when the new MIMEs got into the tarball before

Unless the artwork team starts using branches properly IMHO
the only solution is to keep oxygen-icons at .0 each time
and give up on point releases for it. It's not possible for
the release tagger to sort things out on an icon-by-icon

In this case I guess things would have to fall back to the
4.6.2 tarball.
