Apper missing icons in software lists

Debian Wheezy, KDE 4.8.4, Radeon HD 7750 (non-free firmware installed) - fresh OS install.

When I open Apper the software groups display proper icons. When, however, I click on any of the group's icon the list has only first few lines with icons of the installed packages and the rest (90%) no icons are displayed; the lists display double entries - both as per pictures:

This is not correct is it?

Thank you

I suggest that you report this to Debian as a bug in apper:

I also suggest that you switch from using apper to using synaptic. synaptic doesn't show any icons but sysnaptic is a far better front end for Debian's package management software than apper is.

jailbait thanks. I've installed synaptic just after my post. I know it for quite a while. Pity about the apper. I will report it as a bug but and hope that other will find this too so it could be addressed.
