I did not file a bug myself back then. However I could find two items related to my experience:

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=168014

Here GNOME menu items are described to be too large. This was the same on my system, and the comments say it was an intentional SuSE patch.

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=164680

This one tells that there are many KDE icons on a GNOME only install. Yes my icon theme was also KDE'ish and could not change it.

This third one is not a bug, but explains things for me. It tells that GTK uses QT theme engine, which effectively makes it look like KDE.

Actually I've checked latest screenshots after these comments, and the GNOME desktop look a lot like a regular one now. I'll give it another chance, but I guess I should stick with Fedora a little bit more if I need a GNOME based distribution.

Bug 1 and 2 are basically the same problem. People didn't like the size and look of the previous default icons. I can agree with that, they aren't very good looking. I don't think it would be impossible to get rid of them though, either by selecting another default icon theme under themes > theme details or just uninstalling the RPM. But the point is that suse offers exactly the same options to customize the desktop as any other distribution with gnome. It's just the defaults that are different. Besides neither of these bugs are relevant anymore since suse has a new gnome menu and a tango based icon theme now.

The other bug is about gtk-qt-engine, a GTK engine that uses the QT theme. It's only used when running GTK applications under KDE so it's not a problem for gnome users.

I think you should try 10.2. You wont be dissapointed, except for the broken package management perhaps. ;)
