An icon called an icon

In Lotus Notes 8.5.3, some of the alternative text for icons in the mail view is useful (e.g. SameTime icons show the user's phone number and availability) but often the alternative text is the useless "icon called an icon" text such as "Paperclip Icon" for a paperclip or "Unopened yellow envelope Icon" for ... you can guess.
