I've found that the new interface is not quite as brisk at getting updates
done as the old KDE 3 interface was. Sometimes large portions of a window
will fail to update during long moments when various internal processes are
grinding away. Everything always resolves itself eventually though, and while
it definitely looks a bit less refined, it never really looks all the way
What you're describing sounds more like broken to me, and I haven't seen
anything I'd characterize as truly broken since the very early stages of
getting the new interface running.
I do seem to remember people having some issues with GNOME in the past though,
and all my experience has been with KDE. Rosegarden is _supposed_ to work
fine under GNOME, and I've even seen a screenshot where somebody got the GUI
(but not the sequencer engine) to run on Windows. If it looked OK in the
completely alien environment of Windows, I can't think of any reason why it
shouldn't look OK in GNOME.
You might take a look at LMMS for comparison, which is another Qt-based
application that does heavy customization of its own look through stylesheets.
If one is misbehaving, I'd be surprised if both of them didn't misbehave,
although it's true that LMMS's use of stylesheets is MUCH cleaner and less
complicated than ours.
You could also try turning off the stylesheet and running that way. I forget
where that option is, but it's called "Use Thorn style" or something to that
effect. You want to turn it off and restart.
