I installed this theme in my Ubuntu 12.04 + Unity and all tabs are definitively wrong:

Any idea to make this theme work properly?

    The theme is clearly stated to Support Gnome 3.6 only, 12.04 uses Gnome 3.4, either edit it or get a version for 3.4 of the theme. Apr 21, 2013 at 23:15

In order for tabs and scrollbars to display properly in Precise you will need to update the Unico theme engine (gtk3-engines-unico) from the 1.2.0 version in the standard PPAs.

This PPA has an update that works for me (1.0.2+r139-0ubuntu2~precise1): http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppa/gnome_shell?dist=precise

I suggest not pulling software other than unico from this repo since it proclaims itself to be "bleeding edge" - personally, I added the PPA, upgraded unico, and then disabled the PPA.
