after updating LibreOffice on a Debian stretch system to 126.96.36.199 (build-ID 1:6.1.0~rc2-3~bpo9+1), all check boxes in data base forms are lost, and it looks as if the icons for form controls toolbar are partly lost (see attached screen shot, German locale, i.e. “Markierfeld” is the newly added check box).
Furthermore, I see many messages like
(soffice:22104): Gdk-WARNING **: gdk_window_set_icon_list: icons too large
on the console – not sure if this is related.
Is this a “known” issue, for Debian at least? Any idea how I can fix it?

You are using a special Debian-build of LO, made from a
release-candidate of LO. The released version of de.libreoffice.org is
Try to install this version parallel to the Debian-version.
Open the form for editing, open the formnavigator and have a look. Do
you see the checkboxes here and not in the form?

The effect also appears for a bigger project for accessing a PostgreSQL data base. The forms document has been created with an older Libreoffice version (5.2, iirc), but it worked just fine (apart from bug #115619) with 6.0, too. With 6.1, the check box controls are gone, with only the titles remaining. Apparently still operational if I click on it (the field in the database changes), but no visible control.

O.k., will try that version (at work, i.e. tomorrow).

I use XFCE on both the Debian and the Ubuntu boxes, with both Gtk+-2.0 and Gtk+-3.0 being available.

Ok. I made a quick test with a freshly installed Stretch vm:
* The package 184.108.40.206 / build-ID 1:6.1.0~rc2-3~bpo9+1 (actually coming from stretch-backports) is definitely broken, i.e. doesn't show the check box forms (also broken in writer), but
* the “official” tarball of deb's from de.libreoffice.org *does* work as expected.
