I'd flag WIkibrowse's use of it in the toolbar as incorrect. It's been a while since I downloaded the Wikipedia activity (due to it's very large size), could you post a screen shot or two (or upload them to the http://activities.sugarlabs.org/en-US/sugar/addon/4401 page so there are some thumbnails for users to see)?

Could you show a screen shot with the secondary toolbar open? Is it just a search input field under there? This browses a local version of wikipedia, yes? If so I'd be rather tempted to remove the primary location field and reload widget, and put the search field up in all that primary space...
If you want to stay with the current design, it would be a quick svg tweak to make a correctly sized custom version of the system-search icon for you to include in your bundle, ping me by email if that's what you want.

Oh yes, Walter's snuck some very similar ones into Turtle Blocks (they only appear in monochrome). I don't wholly object, we've been on quite a meandering path trying to find suitable import/export to Journal icons (badging the keep icon can get too fussy especially if you need to show direction for differencing input and export). Though it would be nice if Walter could standardise on naming them import/export rather than a mix of old school Save as, Load, and one Import. ;-)
