OK, you are 100% correct. Apparently I started blindly using the
Window Decorations section vs the Desktop Theme sections. When I
downloaded Slim Glow that was a new Theme which fixed the problem but
not for the reason I thought at the time.

The Oxygen THEME does a moderately good job of fixing the pager
problem I was seeing. I think I like the Slim Glow theme a bit better
on the pager but I like the Oxygen theme a lot better better on the
widgets so I guess I'll have to play around for a few days and see
what feels better over time.

Gawd, this 'Oxygen' moniker is everywhere, isn't it? Window
Decorations, Desktop Themes, Cursor Themes, Widget Styles, Colors,
Icons, and probably too many more! Absolutely crazy!

OK, thanks for figuring this out. You were exactly right about where
the problem was and now things are much better.
