I've just installed the theme and I'm getting a white line in every window between the title bar and the menu bar. Do you have any idea why it might be? Screenshots look fantastic, congratulations on your work!

This is a wonderful theme, I love it! There is one little issue with it though: The icons in the Bluefish text editor change size when hovering over them; it's quite stressful. I got this on my notebook at work as well as the computer at home (using ArchLinux and Fluxbox). I've tried searching for something in the config files that could explain that behaviour but since I'm not familiar with the GTK theme files I didn't find anything. When using another theme, the issue goes away. Also it doesn't seem to be caused by the icon theme (I use Faenza, btw). I've tested it with another icon theme and the problem persists...

In anyway, thanks for your great work! :)

There's a bug with hover buttons. A border appears on them and the whole dialog "moves"... As if the button takes more real estate when in hover state because of the border. How to fix that?

At the risk of being self promoting, I've done some work on it here: [link]
