fluxbox 0.9.6pre1 slit theme oddities....

Hello all...

I am using fluxbox 0.9.6pre1 on my new slack9 install, and i'm getting a bit of weirdness with my slit applications. I have taken a screenshot available here:

EDIT: for those not down with fluxbox lingo, the slit is the docapp area that for some reason is surrounded by pink in my screenshot, I wanna get ridda the pink.

to show the problem. My slit isn't getting themed to match the rest of my slick fluxbox interface, and I can't figure out why. Anyone who has encountered this? I've tried official themes and user themes, and none of it seems to matter.

I'm open to any suggestions.
Thanks in advance,

I run 0.9.6pre1, and I haven't had any problems. I'm using the SECOND theme from the home page. Here is the relevant portions of my style file:
slit:                                   flat gradient vertical Bevell
slit.color:                             #385588
slit.colorTo:                           SlateGrey
slit.borderWidth:                       1
slit.bevelWidth:                        3
slit.borderColor:                       #000000
Hope that helps.
