It looks like you'd have to created a customized gtk theme to get smaller icons
6. When I install a nautilus theme, the toolbar icons don't change, what's happening?
This is not a bug and is by design. In GNOME 2, in order to make nautilus a more native GNOME app, nautilus themes are not allowed to change the toolbar icons. Toolbar icons can only be changed by gtk themes in a gktrc file.
