I see that you have done so, thanks.

However, there should be no need to explicitly expand-file-name for
the image files, as the documentation of the :file attribute says:

  ‘:file FILE’
       This says to load the image from file FILE.  If FILE is not an
       absolute file name, it is expanded relative to the ‘images’
       subdirectory of ‘data-directory’, and failing that, relative to the
       directories listed by ‘x-bitmap-file-path’ (*note Face

So by explicitly calling expand-file-name, you introduce a subtle
misfeature, whereby x-bitmap-file-path will not be consulted.
