OIC. Good point.

Possible idea: create a new account from the CLI, log in to it -
default settings might work where the existing ones don't - and see if
the theme can be reset from there?

Or, if it's a sacrificial account, experimentally nuke the GNOME
settings in the home directory? (Temporarily move 'em elsewhere to see
if they are causing the problem.)
