Hmm, it sounds like there is more than one layer of theming here: your
window manager is being themed by your "theme chooser" but not actual
program - Gtk allows the user to theme the programs compiled with it
and it comes with a number of themes to choose from. But I haven't

ok, then that is the "normal" behavior - perhaps it could pop-down the
menu when that option is chosen, it would need a bug filing against it
if it is behavior that bothers you...
