vertical spacing problem after removing gnome-shell on natty

Asked by klonuo on 2012-02-04

I insatlled gnome-shell on Ubuntu 11.04 with this commands (taken from history):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell
sudo apt-get install gnome-session

After that I removed it:

ppa-purge ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
sudo apt-get update

and everything seems fine except one problem, vertical spacing on some gtk elements. I had screenshot taken week ago and made new one for comparison (left window is good and right is bad):

This is SciTE editor, but it's same in other editors, in Eclipse, in Nautilus side pane... Everything is condensed and in some cases (Firefox dropdown addressbar history) bottom part of font is missing because of this issue.

Can I do something to solve this issue?

Thanks

I deleted:

~/.gnome/
~/.gnome2/
~/.gconf/
~/.gconfd/

so that settings are reset, but without solving this issue

I launched Guest Session, and there were no issues, so problem is in my own profile.
I deleted ~/.compiz folder, but nothing changed after relogin

Following other advice, I did:

gconftool --shutdown
killall -r -I -9 dconf
killall -r -I -9 gconf
mv gconf-backup .gconf
mv config-dconf .config/dconf
sudo reboot

Still nothing :(

What else could it be?

Root user (right window) doesn't have this problem

I managed to correct Nautilus side pane, by changing current theme's gtkrc
file:

GtkTreeView::vertical_separator = 2

Can't find any reference how to do it for GTK widget responsible for GTK
text editors and widget for inputbox control

It wasn't gnome-shell issue

Thanks for feedback anyway
