That's fixed (sort of) in r10906.  It was one of the many known bits of
brokennes following the core treeview merge a few weeks ago.  There are lots
of other bits of those windows that also don't work, if you go looking for
them; I'm afraid that there's no prize if you find them all, though.

Could you give an example to explain what you're seeing?

NetSurf doesn't use the OS sprites any more (if it ever did); I think
there's a plan to overhaul the look of these windows completely in the
medium to long term, anyway.

It seems to be hard coded at present; it would probably make sense if it
followed the configured face and minimum size.

As a related aside...

I thought this had been said, but it's worth repeating: since r10865, the
test builds have contained the core treeview code.  While the RISC OS
front-end didn't break as catastrophically as it could have done, some
things do still need work to restore all of their former functionality.

It's not an exhaustive list, and it's not really end-user friendly, but

has a list of the main things that are now broken.  Reports of bugs are
still very useful (and if in doubt, it may be best to err on the side of
presuming a bug).
