Why another global variable? Shouldn't that be $_CONF['icon_url']? 
$_THEME_URL sounds like it should contain $_CONF['site_url'] . 

Also, if you go into the archives, I posed a solution for this a 
while back. Create an $_IMAGES array similar to the $LANG arrays. 
This way theme can move ANY image they want.

$_IMAGES = Array(
      'admin_edit' => $_CONF['site_url'] . 'images/admin/edit.' . $_IMAGE_TYPE,
      'admin_delete => $_CONF['site_url'] . 'images/admin/delete.' . 
// etc.

$display .= "<img src=\"{$_IMAGES['admin_edit']}\"" . XHTML . ">";

The array would probably be located in a "lib-images.php". Plugins 
could follow suit with $_IMAGES_CALENDAR and $_IMAGES_LINKS etc.
