It's not the arrow really, it's the decoration round it. His most
recent image:

demonstrates it best. If you look at the left image, the lower
drop-down box has a red line on three sides of a rounded-edged
square, in order to highlight it as a button. These are on the top,
right and bottom sides of the square. The decoration on the drop-down
on the right is a full square, and actually looks complete.

Neither is functionally broken, and neither causes the arrow to point
on the wrong direction, but from an aesthetic point of view, the left
one is not in the same style as the rest of the UI and looks very
clunky; it's clearly not what is supposed to happen.
