rEFInd include line ignored?

view story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – I "solved" this by including the stanzas directly in refind.conf. But I would still like to know where I went wrong.Also, I found that just doing that meant that the os_arch.icns was ignored and it just used a default icon - even though the icon spec  comes after the volume spec. What I'm  now trying is have a copy of that icon in /boot/arch_refind/icons/os_arch.icns and putting the icon spec (sans EFI/) after the volume spec. But I don't know why this is necessary, even assuming it works, as I thought the volume spec only affected lines following it - not lines p (HowTos)
