That's a problem with GTK+, not with X11.

Yes, I know that. That was my whole point.

It's amazing how often QT/KDE devs bend over backwards to make GTK+/GNOME interoperate and look nice on a non-GNOME system ... and how rarely it's reciprocated.

I know. It annoys me because Qt/KDE does all the extra work and has way better technology, but I just really don't like KDE that much. So I use GNOME, even though it feels like I'm stuck in 2005 and Gtk+/GNOME is technologically inferior in practically every way.
