Just for completeness, the issue here seems to be that the various
_initialise() functions for the treeview modules (cookies_initialise(), etc)
need be called from gui_init2() after the content fetchers have been set up.
 When called from gui_init(), as they were in the RISC OS front-end, the
content system can't fetch the graphics that early in the process and so
flags them all up as having errors.

Given that I don't fully understand the browser core yet, does this
explanation sound vaguely sane or have I just stumbled across a fix by
