yes, i'm still digging into it. going to
be delayed for a while now. if i figure it
out i'll post a fix.

everything gnomish, xish, is up to date.

the xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.18.0-2 trying to switch
to intel site downloaded version. too old... skip for now.

no bug is worth being filed for a cosmetic
item like this. it mostly works. looking at
bug tracker for both debian and gnome site looks
like they are swamped with reports. sending bug
upstream to be ignored makes more work for
everyone. if i get a patch or fix then i can
at least then file something useful for others
who might have similar problem to find.
was hoping someone who was familiar with gnome
internals could point me to code and i think by
what you've said i may figure something out. i'm
finding places to alter and test the result as
soon as i can get the build environment set up.
i've gone too far ahead for the moment.
thank you for your replies,
