In my case, the problem was that the local launcher definition (~/.local/share/applications/google-chrome-stable.desktop) was pointing to the wrong path for the chrome executable.

The --window-icon parameter isn't meant to set the image displayed in the info/warning/message/question dialogs, but the gtk-window icon. You can confirm that this is set using xprop. This means that there is currently no answer to this. If you are willing to modify the code and compile it yourself, I have added a patch to the reported bug on launchpad: ...

Ctrl-Alt T should pop up a terminal, or you could switch to a virtual term with Ctrl-Alt-F2. .
