[SOLVED] Why button classes are not working inside tree tags?

I created a form, and in its XML definition I added a tree which is working. Each row of the tree has a button which is working too, but I am only seeing the symbol of image not found (if I open the browser's developer mode, I can check that the img tag is pointing to a picture called undefined.png).

However, if I cut the line of the button and paste it out of the field "link_category", I can see the image. Why? Here is my XML:

    <field name="link_category" nolabel="1">
        <tree string="Categories" editable="bottom">
            <field name="active_category"/>
            <field name="link_category_id"/>
            <field name="type"/>
            <field name="date"/>
            <field name="observations"/>
            <button name="open_history" type="object" string="View history" class="oe_link"/>

"link_category" is a function field of type many2many, which returns a dictionary whose keys are partner ids and values are lists of link categories ids.

Finally I could not insert a button with a class inside a many2many field, and I do not know if this is possible from the OpenERP framework, so I got an aceptable solution using icon. This way at least the view is beautiful and the button is still working.
