DarkRoom active window caption is unreadable in Human colors

Bug Description

Binary package hint: human-theme

After setting DarkRoom window decorations while keeping Human colors, active window caption text is drawn with two shades, both dark in color, which makes text unreadable.

Disabling shading in metacity-theme-1.xml in /usr/share/themes/DarkRoom makes the text readable, and doesn't cause any visible difference on DarkRoom colors either.

The package I chose for reporting was the one supplying me the /usr/share/themes/DarkRoom.
Here are the screenshots.
Also, removing shading altogether might not be the best solution, maybe some other colors will suit better?

Just to clarify, the package darkroom is an image manipulation tool. The theme DarkRoom is provided by the human-theme package.

andrew@andrew-testing:~$ dpkg -L human-theme | grep DarkRoom
