The thing you describe as a 'design failure' is the default gtk theme. 
If you see that with every theme you select from the user interface 
dialog there are two possible problems, none of which have anything to 
do with xfce:

1) you have an ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file that overrides the settings from the 
xfce settings manager.

2) the theme engine that is required by the theme are either not 
installed or not installed correctly.

We know xfce works with all versions of gtk, so it is really not an xfce 
problem. Trust us, it is not. It may be a problem with the rpm packages, 
or with your system, I don't know.

If you have decided to use icewm, that's alright, it's very good (or so 
I've heard ;-). I don't think the problems with your gtk themes are a 
very good reason to switch though.
