The later cause the former is fast fixed. In Ubuntu you have:
* menuproxy breaking menu accelerators 
* liboverlay-scrollbar used to break scrolling and drawing (has been disabled in equinox launcher for some time and should be gone in latest ubuntu version)
* a gtk 3 theme which doesn't ship dark variant making a no-op and thus scrollbars,menues, window decorations and others not styled properly
* a gtk 3 theme that doesn't gray out(or mark in some other way) disabled buttons -
* a gtk 3 theme that either use backdrop style too much or does it inconsistently leading to

And this is just from top of my head if you look into bz you'll find a number of others. Haven't heard any of these come from non Ubuntu user and even Ubuntu user don't get them when they switch to use gnome-shell instead of unity and adwaita theme.
