Sorry, that was wrong: a leftover from manually installing a new png based on
the svg. So when I have both, the png wins and the svg is seemingly ignored.
So first task would be to create a new (and square !!) 48x48 png from the svg
or higher-res png.

But on a lark, I just went into setting and toggled the icon size from 48
(default) to 36 ... and _voila_ I get a new (no background !!) one drawn
seemingly from the svg.  So the solution appears to be to remove the png.
Will try that later.
