Have you looked under "User Interface" in the XFCE configuration menu? From there you can select what icon theme you want to use and make a few other changes. You might find something useful there.

I did a little digging, and apparently running xfce-mcs-manager does the trick - I tried on my system and it's fixed that exact problem, even though I use thunar in WindowMaker.
