Bug Description

It seems with the recent theme changes that little care was given to make sure synapse looks good in a non-composited environment. Each theme seems to have varying levels of issues:

Default/Essential: Edge padding is too small. The black border on the outside edge is misaligned vertically by a half-pixel, resulting in a fuzzy bottom edge, and the top coordinate is wrong, leaving the top edge black.

Doish/Side Doish: Edge padding is too small. Once again, the black border is missing at the top, and there is a white line towards the bottom because the contents don't draw far enough downward.

Virgilio: Edge padding is too small, and looks good otherwise.

Sorry, mistype. The top edge line is _blank_ in the default theme, not black.

Synapse has a "fallback" mode for non-composite, so I didn't care too much for these details.
Starting from now we're dropping gtk2 support, so new themes (0.3.0) will be written in gtk3,
I promise that I'll try to pay more attention to the fallback mode!

I can confirm this bug with the latest Synapse release. Just wanted to ask: Has there been any progress with this? If there's a development release I would gladly test it out.
