That is the Desktop theme, ya... which Window Decorations theme are you using
and which video card?
I have a GeForce Go 6100. So far I've tried Air and Oxygen on the Desktop,
with B II and Oxygen (the light one, not the one labelled "by Sean Wilson")
for Window Decorations. I have not tried creating a fresh account, yet.
If we can pin this down wrt card, themes, or configs we may be able to
determine if a bug report is warranted and who should get it. A report at this
time would amount to a fairly useless, `it don't work', IMO.
