I-O-M could be a bit clearer here...
Exporting as META:ICON or BEOS:ICON adds the icon as attribute to a file (in case of BEOS:ICON, it'll then be used visibly as icon of the file). So, normally, you choose an existing file to assign that icon to.

So, what should be removed is the alert that "The file X alread exists in the specified folder. Do you want to replace it?", because only the attribute will be added/replaced.

Also, when choosing a new file to export that attribute to, that new file should be created. Right now, as the ticket points out, I-O-M just silently does nothing.

Yes that message is displayed, but the saved icon does not replace the old icon for the file chosen.

That's because you exported as META:ICON. You can check by opening the file with DiskProbe and have a look at its attributes. Tracker only displays BEOS:ICON attributes as file icon.

My misunderstanding. Thankyou.
