This logo was never intended (at least not originally) to be a desktop
icon.  Application icons are in the directory src/ui/gui/app-icons
Currently there is only one 16x16 icon there, and it is far from beautiful.
However this is what get's installed in the gnome icon directory and gets
used by default.

Pspplogo.{svg,png} is intended to be used only in the About dialog. (click
Help|About or Hilfe|Info in a de locale).  Maybe we're seeing different 
results due to differing theme engines, screen hardware etc, but I thought 
your mailed logo looked rather fuzzy in that screen.
I'm attaching an xmag capture of the two so that you can see what I mean.
Mine has fewer anti-aliasing artifacts, and appears "crisper" - at least
that's my opinion.

You're right about the readability in small icons.  For this reason it is 
often necessary to create a whole set of icons to cover each resolution.
Would you like to have a go at producing such a set?  We would need icons
at 16x16, 22x22, 24x24, 32x32, 48x48 and 64x64

     Hmmm, sorry i am not quite happy with the new SVG in Git, as i also
     rescale it to 48x48 in Inkscape, since all other GNOME icons seems to be
     made for that, because it scales better to 48x48 and 64x64. I also
     rearranged the objects a bit and converted the alpha background of the
     rectangle to white (like in the website logo and for better contrast).
     So it would be nice if you can review the mailed SVG a bit more in
     detail and maybe rebase the font changes on that one. On a side note i
     think the white "S" is good for a similar look to the splash, but
     probably not the best for readability in small desktop icons.
