Most icons are missing actually, such as open, save on the toolbar.

When running, I launched it via the Windows explorer (double click 
geany.exe). This and the lacking icons don't happen when running the 
make install'd geany.

BTW: Another observation I missed to mention: On autotools our .dll is 
libgeany.dll not geany.dll
