This appears to happen mainly with the Greybird appearance style of
desktop.  Adwaita, High Contrast (yuck), Numix and Raleigh don't seem
to have the same problem.

Go to Settings -> Appearance and change to another theme to see which
one fixes it.

I liked Greybird because I could get a blue border on the active
window with certain Window styles, but the labels are more important
to me, at least for now.
