Eureka! In looking at this older thread again, something popped out at me. I tried recompiling, reinstalling apps, etc. Nothing brought back my icons for placed items in Weland. Until now!
It never occurred to me to check the version of Mono. Turns out I was using the latest version of Mono (3.x.x). And I guess that does not play well with weland. Also, the other thing that confused me previously, is that there is no 2.10.11 version out on SourceForge in the Archived Versions area. It only lists up to 2.10.9 in the Archive. So, on a whim I googled it and found 2.10.11 here (links on this page) http://stackoverflow.com/questions/19073615/can-not-install-mono-runtime-2-10-11-on-my-osx-10-8-5-macs
The actual link for what I installed (MRE version) is here:http://download.mono-project.com/archive/2.10.11/macos-10-x86//MonoFramework-MRE-2.10.11.macos10.xamarin.x86.dmg
. I installed this on Yosemite (OS X 10.10) and now all works fine!!!
This is awesome since now I can go through my levels and fix extra items that I simply could not see before and make item placement make more sense!!
I just wanted to share this since I know others are having trouble with this bug as well.

It's also working fine for me with the beta version of Mono 3.4.0. Maybe Mono 3.2 was a bad release?
