thnx. Due to limitations of deKorator you need to place the minimize button in the utmost left position (most left button on the left side of the window) and the maximize button on the right side. All other buttons need to be on the right side of the window (left of the maximize button). Then it looks ok. I couldn't find another way to make it work...

The top corners of the outside window frame should be striated, just like the bottom corners. For some reason this was done with the icons instead. The problem this creates is that icons can't be reordered without mucking up the corner striations.
