Bug Description

The rounding radius on certain widgets in the menu seem to be inconsistent, Like in the bottom corner where the outermost corner is overly rounded in comparison to the inner dark section and other rounded items such as the search bar etc. Inner items should always be less round, to their outermost ones so the UI fits into better blocks.

Suggestion : Use radii that are concentric to each other for each rectangular object in the menu from the inner buttons and widgets to the outer borders, so that they "fit" into each other better.

Best example I could find to show this visually is here
http://explodingpixels.wordpress.com/2009/04/22/concentric-rounded-rectangles/

formula ( I think?)
innerRadius=(outerRectWidth-innerRectWidth)/2

The main culprit for the bug is the outermost border, the others are not so serious.
