I found this link : http://www.typo3.net/forum/list/list_post//87442/?page=1#pid325790

The problem was apparently that the topicIcons where not rendered  
but has a white block. It might be that the authors website has a  
white background?

Now the modern icons appear properly, I just don't have any idea
why a small icon needs to be rendered on a 32x32 pixel block

         topicIcon = IMAGE
         topicIcon {
             file = GIFBUILDER
             file {
                 XY = 32,32

I think I just expected with the 'modern' look something amazing to  
happen :D hehehehe

So apart from the small bug in the pi1 file that is already solved in  
SVN I think it works as 'expected',
it just might not be something that I expected something else...
