Chrome Version : (Developer Build 20863)
OS + version : Linux

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. set chrome to use GTK+ theme

To further test this, got make sure you have some backward history but no 
forward history. The "Next" button will be display grayed out = disabled. 
Now compare this to the Star button and the URL entry: those look even more 
grayed out. Same for the "go to" button and also the page/wrench buttons.

IMHO at least the Star and Goto buttons need to better match the 
active/disabled border colors of the GTK theme. Fill color could also be 
mimicked better but that's not the biggest problem.

Also, drawing the Star/Goto/Page/Wrench "glyphs" with a grayed out look 
makes it very hard to guess the state of the buttons. IMHO there are two 
possible solutions:

Summary: GTK Theme:Star/Go button/entry area don't match GTK+

The following revision refers to this bug: 

r20914 | | 2009-07-16 16:09:39 -0700 (Thu, 16 Jul 2009) | 14 lines
Changed paths:

GTK Themes: Make the location bar area look native.

Replace the star and go buttons with a native looking thing, where
we manually draw the theme's button image for the full omnibox area
and then position the star/go buttons on top of that.

Also adds stand in versions of star_noborder and starred_noborder
until Glen can make real icons.

Happy to see the original problem of this issue is indeed fixed. However the 
implementation is highly problematic, it seems to break on most (all?) themes with 
rounded buttons... see screenshot.
