To let an object from a user library appear in the user libraries icon grid you need to add a textnode into the "visual" subtree of the object. The node needs to be named "picture" and has to take the path to the bmp/jpg to be shown in the icon grid.
If the object doesn´t have a "visual" node, maybe because its just a dropscritp withot any visualization, you can put the "picture" node directly into the object´s tree.

Good luck!
