Thanks for all your feedback. As the bug in this case is pretty simple to
fix I will just fix it and try to get feedback from the reporter. I am
not sure if I will feed it upstream because in this special case the
error is in the gtk2 smooth engine which is now already part of
gtk2-engines-2.6.0 where this bugs seems to be fixed.
In fact all theme engines from gnome-themes-extras will be in
gtk2-engines for FC4/FE4.

We don't really understand it, so we'll give it to the programmers.
