Thanks for the info. In fact I already did the chnage myself and 
recompiled. Indeed there is a transparency bug in many menus but nothing 
that makes it really hard to use. On the menu that do not work correctly 
(didn't find a patern yet) fonts are looking ugly unless you move the 
pointer on it.

I broke my X system with a bogus dist-upgrade and was forced to 
reinstall libglx and nvidei xorg driver :-(
