This is sort of by design, but may be changed/refined later. For the full story, see 
 issue 21672 .

A very quick recap: There was outcry that on Windows, the rest of the windows didn't 
match the main frame. Per Glen, popups couldn't use the main theme_frame image 
because there are a bunch of themes where any text would be totally unreadable if we 
used that image. So we use the tab images for these windows, which already are guaranteed to have a good text color/image combination for readable text. (Now, of 
course, there is an outcry that we're doing things this way.)

I intend on reverting this behaviour in the case of the default theme. This has been 
the default behaviour for mac for a while. Whether this change sticks long-

The following revision refers to this bug: 

r49458 | | 2010-06-10 15:23:02 -0700 (Thu, 10 Jun 2010) | 9 lines
Changed paths:

GTK: Always use default frame in popup windows.

Now that glen@ has spoken, make popup windows on linux match the XP behaviour
by never using themed resources for the window frame.
