One problem I've always had with New Wave is that transparency does not seem
to be set correctly for the gnome panels.  I like setting the panel
transparency to ~70%.  It works fine for the panel itself but not many of
the things on it, including the background behind them menu titles
(Applications, Places, System) and I believe the notification area.  This
has not been a problem with the Human theme or other custom themes I have
used.  I'm using the New Wave packaged in the community-themes package.
