Thanks for that suggestion (and thanks to Dave too). I had tried the 
lxappearance widget to change themes, and while that one is really 
good for icon themes, it doesn't show you examples of what will change 
with a gtk theme, so it didn't seem worth it to mess with that.

Now that I've tried gtk-chtheme I realize what I've been missing. :) 
That does indeed make the buttons on lxpanel look more 21st century, 
so I'll give that a ride for now I suppose.

Would still be nice to address the transparency problem ...
