Its broken for those who use openoffice and numerous other applications
that use the transparency option.  In OO, most of the icons have a black
background, and some slides in the presentation client are also affected
for me.  As I use my gentoo laptop to give presentations its a show
stopper. (When I first loaded it up, it looked OK, but then when I
loaded the presentation in public it became "what OS is that - god its
ugly ..., why dont you use ..." - nothing like a public fiasco to drive
home gentoo's shortcomings :( )

Ive fixed it for my self (as Ive previously described), but what about
the new or average user which is why I originally brought it up?  My
needs are covered, its "gentoo" itself that I think is being
shortchanged.

In any case, this is getting even further off-topic for the security
list.  Check the bug.
