idesk launches the default home icon as an XPM file under the name "folder_home.xpm" when it should be folder_home.png since imlib2 does not load XPM icons. This causes idesk to crash.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
idesk 0.7.5-7

* config and/or log files etc.
default configuration

Steps to reproduce:
-install idesk
-attempt to load, it will crash with an error like this:
"Idesk starting in :0
Can't load: /usr/share/idesk/folder_home.xpm bailing -- Idesk
Check to see if the image and path to image is valid

I can reproduce it, but it is strange:

$ imlib2_view /usr/share/idesk/folder_home.xpm

command shows icon.
