I found a way to reproduce it.
1. rm -rf .mozilla/
2. start iceape to generate a fresh .mozilla/ and exit without making
   any changes.
3. copy the attached chrome.rdf to the chrome subdirectory in your
   profile (~/.mozilla/default/e49r9dec.slt/chrome/chrome.rdf)
4. start iceape, select Modern theme, exit iceape
5. start iceape, Modern theme is used, exit iceape
6. start iceape, Classic theme is used again.

Afaict setting »user_pref("general.skins.selectedSkin",
"modern/1.0");« in prefs.js normally (i.e. without a "broken"
chrome.rdf) is propagated to chrome.rdf at the next restart, however
this does not seem to happen, chrome.rdf stay unchanged.
