Thanks Elizabeth. For now I'd like to wait, because
1) we're working on a new greeter that will make this bug obsolete (hopefully) and
2) it's possible that this is a bug in Gtk3 (I've had similar experiences in the Precise cycle that I tried to fix a bug that turned out to be in Gtk3).

Most likely this is related to Bug 1000545 (https://bugs.launchpad.net/unico/+bug/1000545), I think we'll have to watch this closely for gtk-theme changes for 12.10

OK, finally found time to fix this bug (in the bright-menus branch of Greybird at the moment). Will be merged to master and then released/uploaded to Quantal asap.
