That might be so, but even if it had used real Aqua widgets,
the same problem would have occurred.

My point was that using native widgets is not in itself
enough to ensure a native experience. There are conventions
about *how* the widgets are used, and other things about
the behaviour that don't relate to widgets at all.

Native widgets are certainly a better thing to start
from, though.
