Yes, and adding themes (gaudy or tasteful) won't help those little things.

Maybe we need a really good graphic designer to look at Gtk and give
suggestions.  Obviously, before one worries about adding zillions of gaudy
themes, getting the basic look "right" is more important.

I like the basic look.  I just concur with several others that the details
could use a bit of tweaking.

For example, I am just learning GTK at this point, but one of the Hello,
apps in the tutorial (if you add the "quit" button), displays the text
slightly off-center.  Little things like this can make or break you in terms
of how professional your app looks.
