 I have solved it now by patching wxpython:


 For this, I have taken the Fedora python-wxpython4-4.0.7 SRPM, extracted
 the patches, filtered by wx-patches, brought into the right order by patch
 timestamp, applied all to the wxpython package on Ubuntu (some where
 already present, others missing), and eventually created a new patch by
 kind of cherry-picking:


 Hence to be done in OSGeo-live:

 cd /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/wx/
 wget https://data.neteler.org/tmp/ubuntu_jammy_wxpython4_0_7_fixes.patch
 -O /tmp/ubuntu_jammy_wxpython4_0_7_fixes.patch
 sudo patch -p1 < /tmp/ubuntu_jammy_wxpython4_0_7_fixes.patch

 Then GRASS GIS 8.2.1 (and later) comes up properly with all icons shown.

 This patch should really go into
