A screenshot of a problem in Nokoda theme
Thanks for the report. I am aware of this problem and until now I was unsure as
to how to approach it. The problem arose as a result of the want to have all the
buttons joined. I reworked the metacity to have the buttons together, but not
joined, I'll attach a screenshot of the proposed solution for your considering.

As far as I can see there is still one problem, borders inside button block are
two times wider then outside of it.
I'm not familiar with theme creation but this seems to be an affect of using

buttons backgrounds, put button background (gradient) in button image file and
use background to create borders with collapsing margins between buttons (if CSS

There are two basic things how can you do a button layout and both has their
1. you specify the backgrounds according to position of the button, which is

2. you specify the background for each button, which leads to the problem in
solution#1 - i.e. the borders are for each buttons and that results in the
effect of thicker line between buttons, I tried to get rid of that effect as
much as possible, but it seems quite hard to achieve.
I attach another try, the look is not final, but suggests the way I'd like to

I think it is much better one.
Do You plan somehow to draw left border only for the first button on each side?
