[PATCH] Big icons on Window Buttons with "Show buttons label"
Currently, when "Window Buttons/Properties/Show button labels" is set, the icons on the buttons are small. I prefer them to be big. With the proposed patch, they scale with the height of the panel. See the attached screenshot.
Perhaps make this an option? Three way combo "Large icons only"/"Large icons + labels"/"Small icons + labels", instead of the current checkbox?
PS: Along with the patch, I have the following in .gtkrc-2.0
XfceTasklist::max-button-length = 350 # pixels
class "XfceTasklist" style "xfce-tasklist-style"

Window Buttons with labels and big icons
we revisited this part in the Gtk+3 port and decided to not do too much scaling simply because the icons provided by libwnck only come in very specific sizes and are therefore often very fuzzy (it's either 16px or 32px that you can then scale up/down).
The current behavior is probably not what you would like to hear, but we don't scale icons all the way, instead we jump from 16 to 32 when it makes sense.
