Bug Description

Ambiance does not show a dashed line to indicate that more content is scrollable. I have been using another theme than Ambiance for some time and I find the dashed line very helpful.

1. Change theme to Adwaita (or a third-party theme called Materia)
2. Start Rhythmbox
3. Make sure you have a big collection of music so that you can scroll up, down, left and right
4. Look at the edges of the browser views (genre, artist and album) in Rhythmbox
5. You will see dashed lines at the edges, which indicate that there is more content to scroll to

I wish ubuntu-themes could support these dashed lines.

You could maybe add a screenshot to the bug showing the feature you request?

In this screecast Nautilus using Adwaita, notice the dashed lines at the top and bottom. They appear when there is more content to scroll to, and disappear when there isn't.
