I should have been more explicit.  It wasn't just aesthetically
wrong---it was obviously buggy.  It had what looked like a button
which the dialog wasn't tall enough to display, and the whole thing
flickered constantly.  And as I said, I don't know what might have
been wrong---possibly the Debian build (slightly wrong versions of the
gtk libraries or something).
