Down arrow but missing up arrow for option menus

Bug Description

light-themes, Ubuntu Natty

The menubutton arrow for combo boxes (which GTK calls "ComboBoxEntry") points downwards, suggesting that the menu (almost always) opens downwards; this is correct.

The arrow for option menus (which GTK erroneously calls "GtkCombo") also points downwards; this is incorrect, because the menus usually open both upwards and downwards.

Option menus should have a pair of arrows pointing up and down, as they do in Clearlooks for example.
