That's the 'old' system and really shouldn't be used. What you probably
missed is the bit I missed from my original email - when using the new
system you need to add these snippets:

%post
touch --no-create %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor &>/dev/null || :

%postun
if [ $1 -eq 0 ] ; then
    touch --no-create %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor &>/dev/null
    gtk-update-icon-cache %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor &>/dev/null || :
fi

%posttrans
gtk-update-icon-cache %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor &>/dev/null || :

to the spec. Otherwise the icon cache doesn't get updated so the icon
won't be available.

ah, I see. I misunderstood you as suggesting that you need to pipe data
to rasmol at startup to make it useful, obviously that's not the case :)
