Not a bug. Firebird uses a cross-platform toolkit to display the UI, which uses some but not all native widgets. -> INVALID

What does it mean "not a bug". I'm a user and I don't know what Firebird uses inside. But I want that my desktop looks an feels consisten. Now it's not true. If your cross platform toolkit mixes together native and non native widgets so not native widgets should looks like native. Take a look at Swing (Java cross platform toolkit) under Windows XP. It looks like native!
The interface is as native as it can be. Nothing more can be done. Sorry but that's the end of it. Use a theme which tries to imitate gnome app appearance.
So as I understand you are not going to fix this even in a future? If so "not a bug" is a nice solution to ping-pong user requests :( Who said that current implementation is "native as it can be"? If there are limitations in _current_ implementation it doesn't mean that it cannot be fixed (improved) in the future... So I insist that that is a bug. Moreover menu under Windows XP looks like native! It simply means that GTK port lacks some functionality. And that is a bug.
