My mind went blank for a long "moment", I missed that Adwaita is part
of this package. Thank you very much :).

$ grep gnome-themes-standard /var/log/pacman.log | grep 2016-04

OTOH, GTK2 apps are affected and the GNOME maintainers likely want to
make GTK2 apps look consistent with GTK3 GNOME apps, so that they

to report to this kind of upstream, a long time ago.
