Why can't I use icons from /usr/share/icons/HighContrast/48x48/devices ?

Fresh install linux mint 18.3 Cinnamon. I try to change some program-icons using the menu-editor. If I try to select an icon from /usr/share/icons/HighContrast/48x48/devices then the menu-editor shows the selected icon,
but the icon isn't saved after closing the menu. As a test I copied the icon into my pictures-folder. Then I was able to replace the icon by means of the menu-editor. I guess that the menu-editor can't cope with "48x48"-name
of the parent-folder? Is this some kind of a bug?

I had the same problem and what I found is that it only works if I move the icon I want to use to my home folder

/home/[user]/.icons/

and select it from there.
