Bug Description

Ubuntu patches Gnome apps to use tradition titlebar and menubar (in some apps) so that it can work well under Unity (Specially for LIM).

But Unity is not the default desktop anymore. And Desktop Team goals is to reduce the Ubuntu-specific patches they are carrying. So in future they are likely to be dropped. But then it will create problem for Unity.

One simple solution is to use gtk3-nocsd. gtk3-nocsd will automatically force all applications to use traditional titlebar.
