No theme, sorry, I forgot to mention that this happens under LXDE. – Mitch May 23 '12 at 17:20
Could you provide more information , like you are using Lubuntu or have you installed LXDE-desktop Environment manually. – atenz May 23 '12 at 17:30
Installed LXDE-Desktop manually. – Mitch May 23 '12 at 17:39
I experience this bug with the default theme in Blackbox as well. I'm very surprised to see such a severe bug in the default theme. – August Karlstrom Jun 7 '12 at 12:15

Well, I found out its a bug See Here

Even in the bug description it suggests a solution, changing the widget style to .... but that did not work for me. What I have done is change the widget to Ambiance, and that fixed it, although it changed the look. Hopefully this bug will be fixed soon.
