As Mattias said, they are too small, and often the action based on the
icon (if you can make out what the picture is) isn't well represented.
And then the most obvious one... the menu item already has clear
readable text, telling the user exactly what the menu item does. So why
do you need two things (icon and text) to tell a user what a menu item does?

Toolbars are obviously a different matter, because often they don't have
any text next to them - so the icon is all you have to go on. This is
never the case with menus though - you always have the text part.
