but I'd like to see the icon improved before we fix this bug, or else IMHO it 
will actually be a visual regression for Sublime Text users.

parts of the current icon that depict a tabbed view, we could replace the lines 
of text with the orange S logo, or overlay it on top of them or something. I'm 
not sure if the tabbed view iconography is even necessary though.

  I'm guessing it was meant to make the Sublime Text icon look similar in style 
to the Kate and KWrite icons, but you're probably right that using an icon 
completely different from the official one isn't a good idea.
