Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.2.8-5
Severity: normal

I recently installed Debian Lenny on an ancient laptop, so I used the XFCE
installation CD.  Everything appears OK, except for the window title bar, 
buttons and borders of the xfce4-terminal package.

The system behaves as if the buttons and title are there, but they are not
rendered, i.e. click-and-drag just above the menubar causes the terminal
window to move around the screen.  Clicking above the top-right extreme end
of the visible window closes the terminal, as if the kill button was there.

I have tried the --show-borders option: no effect.
I have tried changing the visual theme: no effect.
I have tried rebuilding from source: no effect.

I have found no other programs exhibiting this behaviour, which is
inconvenient at best.

Any suggestions will be gratefully received.
