Re: Gnome 3.16 applications in other desktop environments have an ugly frame around their windows now

I am using a Compositor. kwin includes one and when I use xfwm4 as a fallback, I enable the Compositor, too. (and other Compositor effects such as transparency and wobbly are working... )

And this border hasn't been there with Gnome 3.14. + those other DEs / window managers.

Maybe some aspect of foreign compositors working together with Gnome broke in 3.16?

I don't think that's the case.

If no compositor is detected, GTK+ already draws a full border, no
rounded corners, and no shadow.
