They do for me?! However, they're hardly usable because they don't expand on hover. (I think that's because vte doesn't use GtkScrolledWindow.)

Isn't it that they have the styling from the theme but not the
behaviour? They don't seem to be /overlay/ for me; the content reflows
if I expand them. (I guess because it handles those itself, as you say.)

With our latest theme the behaviour seems better than I recall from
before though.
