Icon sizes are themable in GTK+. To experiment, you can simply add

gtk-icon-sizes="panel-foobar=20,20:panel-menu=22,22:gtk-dnd=32,32:gtk-menu=16,16:gtk-large-toolbar=24,24:gtk-small-toolbar=18,18:gtk-button=20,20:gtk-dialog=48,48"

to your ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and start changing this sizes (the values above are
the defaults). panel-foobar is the size for the icon in the menubar.

Note that the panel doesn't pick up new sizes until you restart it.

You should make sure that the Nodoka gtkrc sets the icon sizes to
something that works well for whatever icon theme we end up making the
default.
