Hi James,

I have forgotten to answer to Jay before, as I promissed in my email 
commenting on his style (crossposting, summarizing emails from 2 ML and 
posting answer to one, answering posts from one ML on the other, etc - in 
short: lack of experience). 

The problem is mix of style elements that obviously doesn't work together. 
This is from his post to opensuse-kde at opensuse.org ML:
Currently, I am using:
Style = QtCurve
Icons = Mist
Window Decoration = Redmond
Gtk Styles & Fonts:
Gtk Style = Qt Curve
Gtk Fonts = (Use another font - Adobe Helvetica 8)

I could not find icons called Mist, so I could not recreate his setup. 
With all other elements set as in the list, there is no problems with text 
under icons. 

I can't check in the source code in what order window elements are printed on 
the screen, but from his problems I guess that text is first, then icons, so 
they cover top portion of the text. I suspect as a possible problem that 
icons don't have transparent background, but without set he is using I can't 
check is it a case.   

Regards, Rajko
