Thank you for reporting this bug. We will make it our priority to review this report.
[2.1] search icon missing in search field (Android)
Native app: when the view is loaded from a menu (1. view) in a navigation view then the search icon does not display. If the view is loaded first instead of the menu view, then the icon is there.
Happens on Android V4.0.3 Acer Iconia a500 and V4.1.2 Nexus Galaxy
Does not happen on Android V2.2.2 HTC Desire
We already have bugs reported about the icons not working in some Android devices which we will be looking at doing things differently altogether for icons.
