Stop Light Widget Drop Shadows Disappear in 10.2.3

Once I installed 10.2.3 several of my apps that use the brushed metal look have lost their shadows behind the Close, Minimize and Zoom widgets in the upper left corner of the window. The widgets now look counter sunk instead of raised with a drop shadow.

It does not happen on apps that use the standard white pinstriped look. These are my brushed metal apps that were affected: iChat, Fire (an multiple service IM client), iCal, Address Book. These brushed metal apps were not affected: iTunes, iPhoto and Quicktime.

Fire allows you to choose between the pinstripe or brushed metal look. The widgets are fine in the pinstriped look but the shadows disappear when I switch to brushed metal. Has this happened to anyone else or does anyone know why? I’m using a PowerBook G3 (Firewire).
