Have you restarted plasma-desktop (or all of kde) since you switched 
themes?  It's probably just that some things didn't update properly.  
That'd be a bug, but at this point in kde-4.6's lifecycle, with 4.7 to 
come out later this month and no more 4.6 updates planned, it's not 
something I'd bother reporting.  Now early in a cycle, 4.X.0 thru 4.x.2, 
or if you're brave enough to try the betas or rcs (DEFINITELY then!), 
it's probably worth reporting, but not so much after the last release in 
the bugfix series is out.

Anyway, I believe restarting plasma-desktop (you can do it from a konsole 
window, killall plasma-desktop, then simply rerun plasma-desktop), or 
quitting and starting a new kde session, should fix it.  I just tested 
here (still 4.6.4 but looks to be the same behavior), and some bits of 
the theme indeed do NOT get refreshed until I restart plasma, so there's 
a very good chance that's all you need to do.
