When I added support for GTK+ stock buttons it was the default option.
Judd changed [1] that and now default is without stock buttons.

I started a discussion [2] about using icons or not on the jpilot-devel
mailing list. The problem Judd had with GTK+ stock buttons is that the
button label is defined by GTK+ so the "New record" button is now
"New". But I should let Judd explain himself what he does not like.

Look at the screenshoot at [3]. Look at the Delete, Copy and New buttons
on the upper right corner.
You need to use GTK2 to have these buttons with icons.
