Is this something new in 10.1.3? I tried it in 10.1.2 and it did not work. Weird.

Some rules (bugs) on custom icons in OS X:
You can have a custom icon is OS 9 and OS X simultaneously, but you need to set the custom icon in OS 9
, and then the icon in OS X.
If you want to
a custom icon in X, you need to first open the get info-pane and press delete to remove the prior icon.
And sometimes when you set the icons of Apps and hard-drives, you need to login again for the changes to take effect.
I'm sure there are a whole lot more issues, but these are the ones I've encountered so far. Hope you get it working!

No, boot into OS 9, open the get info panel and paste the OS 9-icon. Then boot into X and set the OS X-icon. Just pasting an OS X-icon in X will not change the icon in OS 9.
I also haven't managed to make a custom OS X icon work on a Classic app. It just shows up as a solid black square.

You don't have to log out and log in. Just relaunch the finder and you are done
