yes. I can reproduce it. I have seen it before. not positive what it
is.. so not sure how to fix it yet. 

btw that theme is butt ugly.. I would definitely stick with ThinIce if I
were you, even if this gets fixed :)



*begin shameless plug *

btw, on themes... why not try Smooth, my current (still very alpha)
theme engine for gtk1/gtk2..(no it isn't in pascal.. I thought about it.


(I would recommend CVS, but 0.4 is usable)

:D :D :D
