That's the same I was saying about KDE.

Emacs has no client-side window decorations, right? More specifically,
it does not sets the background of the title frame.

False. Emacs has lots of features that don't work on old systems. Emacs
runs on those systems with those features disabled.

This can be fixed, Emacs already does that on lots of places, moreso
when it runs on Windows.
