Those borders and things are called widgets right? First... what DID you do? Go in some file and change something or did you just turn on your computer and it was like this? Sorry if this is no help, I don't know the answer is either.

edit ~/GNUstep/Defaults/WMWindowAttributes Delete the line by xterm that says "NoTitlebar = Yes;". Save the file, and your titlebars will be back on xterm.
