Have the icons for these applets changed since Fedora 9?

The lock icon is quite obvious, a picture of a padlock over a screen,
but the logout icon of a green man running away, also suggests (to me)
lock the screen because I'm going away.  If I were to pick an icon for
"lock the computer while I quickly dash to the loo," that would be it.
I think that the logout icon needs something different.

[tim at localhost ~]$ uname -r
