Adium theme problem



I am trying to apply the 'simple desktop' theme to Adium, but it simply doesn't work. The contact list just goes black (with white text), and it should be a transparent contact list. I've removed all files, etc, the normal themes built into Adium work, just not this one, or any other one downloaded.

And just now, my Powerbook went to sleep (because of me forgetting to plug the AC adaptor in). Something interesting happened before it went to sleep; the theme worked. I then switched it back on, and the theme was still working, but the account was offline (of course), so I connected, and it went back to black.
