Hmm, odd. Those changes were submitted and tested by someone for the
0.25 theme, which I don't have access to (only 0.26 here), so I was
only able to test on 0.26 (which worked on the netbook I tested on).

Since it's working on my end in 0.26, can I get a screenshot of what
is happening? As a workaround, you can download a previous version of
the theme from ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/mythtv/themes/0.25/

As for the Eye-of-Sauron, consider it under consideration.
