I have added an icon to puppyluvr's PET and rolled back to this older version in the ibiblio 'wary5' repo. I will upload the PET soon.

What was the problem
A bit curious here about why geeqie crashed. I also had the same problem with Jemimah's pet from here:-
On puppy 412. geeqie-1.0alpha3-i486.pet worked perfectly on puppy 412 also.
