That happens with boarderless frame, it may help if you right click desktop go to Personalization\Window Color and Appearance & pick frost & slide the color intensity all the way to the left

frost is the colour of the transparent theme, ie white colour just highlight your mouse over it

come to think about themes again, damn u microsoft, lol vista theme was the best thing about vista

i actually figured it out in my case, and i hope it works for you too.

do you have a Reflection Topoverlay?

remove it and all will be square.

my overlay topleft is square and not rounded off but that dosent matter for some reason. it will mess up with it there.

Bongo you should really package this theme separately from aero, its extremely well done
Personally its the best Windows 7 theme. With all the other themes i've seen (hundreds) I rarely come across one that's clean, professional and simplistic.
