You manually installed the 2.6.24-13 kernel, right? Browsing the
linux-meta source package on Launchpad shows that it still depends on
2.6.24-12. You probably haven't installed the various other 2.6.24-13
packages (linux-ubuntu-modules - where your sound driver lives,
linux-restricted-modules - where your graphics driver probably lives),
or they haven't yet been built. Once they're all built, linux-meta
will be updated to depend on the -13 kernel packages, and will
automatically pull in the new kernel + necessary associated packages.
I haven't seen any problems with GNOME theme settings. This may be
related, or may be a real bug - it's difficult to tell.
