If you don't use Nautilus-elementary in Gnome 2.32 you can open the 'gtkrc' file in the gtk-2.0 folder and change nautilus-e.rc to nautilus.rc.

Known bugs in this Theme
- Because gnome-shell and gtk3 is still in development there may be a lot of bugs present after each update of the packages gnome-themes-standard, unico engine and gnome-shell.
- Earlier versions of Libreoffice has missing scrollbars. An upgrade to Libreoffice 3.4 or later fixes it.
- In Ubuntu 11.04 classic mode. The right-click menu on some panel applets have a white text and uses the pixmap hover effect. This only happens in Ubuntu 11.04.
- Dialog windows in Gnome 3 fallback mode have weird borders. My current recommendation is that you detach them with gconf-editor.
Open gconf-editor and untick this key:
