Can someone on the list who is technical decipher this. I posted to the GTK 
developers list regarding the fonts/borders.

From your screenshots, it looks like you are using GtkCList and the
obsolete X font backend to GTK+. It's really pretty hard for us to
give an answer for those circumstances - my best guess is that
for some reason GTK+ is using a fontset where some of the fonts aren't
available in small bitmap sizes.

You are going to have to be more specific here. As far as we know,
it's quite possible to have a GTK+ theme with 1 pixel or even 0
pixel borders, and for the theme to draw the borders however it likes.

And there is a specific call to make GtkEntry borderless without
any resort to the theming system.
