:) There is the '5.1' or the 'master' branch but no '5.1 master' branch.
I expect you mean the 5.1 branch at current HEAD.

This setting has probably nothing to do with your problem. KMyMoney is based
on the KDE frameworks. Since you tweaked your settings using Gnome this might
have something to do with it. 

Can you select Breeze (the default KDE theme) in your Gnome tool? Did you try
using the KDE system settings to change the theme?

BTW: I am totally illiterate if it comes to themes.
