But the vertical tabs still respect bg[ACTIVE]. Gee...

Alright, I finally got it.
To whoever might be interested:

1. The default theme for gtk+ 2.24 under Windows has been changed to 
"MS-Windows". Raleigh/gtk-2.0/gtkrc still says "This theme is the 
default theme if no other theme is selected", but that's wrong. The 
bundle README still contains instructions on how to set the theme to 
"MS-Windows", which is now unneeded - it would have been better if they 
changed it with "how to set Raleigh if you want the previous look".

2. The horizontal (only) notebook tabs backgrounds under "MS-Windows" is 
unchangeable with any gtkrc settings. That applies to 2.24, _2.22_, and 
probably the previous versions. The backgrounds are taken from the 
Windows theme, but seem to ignore the settings in Display -> Appearance 
-> Advanced, or there might be no appropriate setting. And on XP, that 
may be dependent on Appearance -> Windows XP style vs. Windows Classic 

Thanks to everyone in the mailing list who was willing to help.
It was a waste of time, but at least if someone in the users list 
complains, we know the answer.

(At some point, I changed the theme to "Emacs" - but only under 2.22, to 
see how it looks. Have I done that under 2.24, this thread would have 
been much shorter.)
