GTK apps can opt out (by not using a GTKHeader widget)
I can't imagine the Gimp adopting that design anytime soon. They're
already quite far from Gnome HIG.

I patched GTK here: to only enable CSD
if the WM supports checking for gtk shadow hints.

If anyone wants to check my patch that would be appreciated.

One of the developers seemed responsive. I'm quite optimistic this
will all be resolved.
