Bug#825653: New frame in TraditionalOK/Green themes makes main menu hard to click on

Package: mate-themes
Version: 3.20.7-1
Severity: minor
Tags: upstream


Since version 3.20 of mate-themes, TraditionalOK and TraditionalGreen
themes display a frame around some UI elements. I'm not sure it's
intentional, since older versions didn't display this frame.

Aside of the aesthetic change, this frame has a huge (IMHO) drawback, as
this frame is also present around the panel's main menu buttons
(although not displayed). This makes the very top of the screen
unclickable. This is really annoying because, when one tries to reach
this menu, almost every time, the mouse cursor touches the top of the
screen, and the click isn't taken into account. The mouse cursor has to
be lowered a bit before clicking, which is really annoying.

I'm not sure it's intentional, since other MATE themes (Menta, etc)
don't have this problem; hence the bug report.

Probably related : this new frame is now drawn around mate-terminal when
it's maximized, but this problem is insignificant and doesn't deserve a
bug report (but may be worth mentioning here).

Of course, if this isn't a bug but intentional behavior (which I
strongly doubt since, as I said, other themes in the package don't
suffer from this problem), feel free to close the bug.
