Bug Description

Settings list separators conflict visually with list item backgrounds.

The separators should be more visually significant than the things they are separating, however the Ubuntu theme is using alternating light/dark backgrounds which drown out the separators.

Screenshot attached.

That's strange. The colour profile is different (despite having none configured and using identical monitors). The list backgrounds look darker on the 17.10 Wayland machine I took the screenshot on, than on my 16.04 desktop I'm now viewing the image on.

That's more a theme issue than a settings one right? Also with the new theme in 18.10 the rows don't alternate colors, does that resolve the issue for you?
