The distorted titlebar .png file

Description of problem:
When Install Fedora 19 Beta on virtual machine, most of the appliation window's titlebar is getting distorted with horizental lines. And another problem is, restriction of changing the wallpaper, unable to do it. Observed that it was present in F18 as well.
I am not sure about the component, but it may be gnome-shell, as it is affecting all the gnome-desktop applications, so reporting against it. With a wild guess, it may or may not be an issue of X drivers. FYI : I have tried it in both Intel and AMD system, and the problem is the same. Observed it in gnome-desktop.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F19 Beta in guest system on Virtual environment
2. Open gedit or gnome-terminal, firefox etc application
3. Observe the window titlebar.
4. Try to change the background or wallpaper of the desktop

Actual results:
1. The titlebar of any window is looking distorted with horizental lines as 
   shown in the screen shot.
2. Unable to change the background or wallpaper of the gnome-desktop or the 
   change is not taking effect, changing the background successfully.

Expected results:
1. The titlebar should show normal with no distortion.
2. Should be able to change the background and the change should take effect.

Additional info: Screen shot attached.
Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 13:23:57 EST
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
