Huh... What version of gtk+ is this? I was unable to set the tabs 
background to anything different than the default gray using .gtkrc-2.0, 
but maybe it takes the background color(s) from some element(s) of the 
Windows theme, or the rendering is different depending on the Windows

The problem is, it doesn't look much different than the Enrico's 
example, no matter the theme, though I have not tested extensively under 
7even. Well, if XP is the problem, I wonder how it'll look under 10? I 
plan it as my next Windows version.

If that's really dependent on the Windows version, it can break any 
moment, and I'd prefer the ability (mentioned by Thomas) to have an 
option for underlining the current tab text (or bold / italic it).

Or should I get the heavy guns and write a plugin that displays line(s) 
of styled buttons that behave as tabs? The default tabs can be hidden in 
the interface preferences.

BTW, having tabs on the left/right "solves" the problem, since the 
background color *is* applied to the vertical tabs. But that would be a 
bit unusual recommendation for all Win~1 users...
