It's the "Window List" (and the "Window Selector" and the "Workspace
Switcher" and the "Show Desktop") process.

Buttons have a theme-defined non-transparent background, making them
not match the expected background for transparent panels.  The patch
removes any UI hint that pressable buttons exist (except for the
currently active window which will still show a button and thus not
match the background) when a pixmap or transparent background is being
used for the panel in order to make the background look cool (there's
some screenshots that Ryan attached to bug 167932 that show a couple
of cases both with and without the patch).
