Sorry but I think I missed the point.
Which "theme" do you refer to? I assume you are not speaking about Windows
XP's Classic theme as it's been there since ages and sure doesn't need any
update to GTK (or if you think so you may contact Microsoft and let them
know ;)

I was under the impression that GTK had a different theme it used when using the classic Windows GTK theme (and it sounds like I may be off the mark on that).

As for devlibs, I'm up with rev. 24 (the latest).
Is there something I can check to better understand where the problem starts
from?

It seems likely that it may have to do with something that has changed with GTK somewhere between what we had before and the version we have now. The only way I can think to test/check where things went wrong is to download other GTK binaries between what we had before and what we have now until you find one that doesn't show the issues and work up from there until you can identify when it broke.

Cheers,
