This is the symptom of a build issue someone told me about. I'm  
really sorry that nobody posted anything to the list about it. You  
need to throw away your build directory and do a clean build, and the  
problem will just go away.

We always try to keep the tree in the good state, and we don't have  
anything like this.

Since this was a bug symptom, you can't do exactly this, but it just  
boils down to a mistake that made all the items think they had a CSS  
border style. You might be able to do that with your own CSS file.
