One other thought here is that position may be important.

I know that in some programming languages the settings that come further up in the program override ones that are later, and I know of others where the reverse is true in that the settings that come later override those that were set earlier.

I can't remember which way openbox does it,  but perhaps, it's just that your tint2 setting is not in the right place to override your default setting for everything else.

Does that make sense?
