I am using Xfce DE version 4.10 on Debian Jessie.  I am re-colorizing
the Xfce window theme (/gtk-2.0/gtkrc and /gtk3.0/gtk.css) and found a
possible bug with the Aisleriot toolbar icon spacing.  Note that I
have only switched out colors - not mucked around with any of the
underlying code. The gtk-3.0 was ported from gtk-2.0 by Peter de
Ridder.  My email to him has gone unanswered.

The toolbar displays as it always has with gtk2 (gtk2.png) but with
gtk3 (gtk3.png and gtk.css) the icon spacing is ignored. It is unclear
whether the problem lies there or with Aisleriot's gtk3 compatibility.
  EVERY Xfce gtk3 compatible theme in /usr/share/themes displays this
quirk and it is also happening to a lesser extent on Albatross and
Greybird Mac.  Any thoughts about how to track this down would be
appreciated.  TIA.



The silence is deafening . . .


In my coding experience gtk3 doesn't respond to attempts to tweak icon spacing (or not in the way that gtk2 does, nor in any other way that I have discovered). Specifically, in my app I have found the default spacing of icons in gtk3 to be too "loose" but I have not succeeded in tightening it; calling API that would seem to be relevant has had no effect.

On that basis, I suspect the issue you mention is not specific to Aisleriot.
