But are the problems related to non-theme GTK customization completely
confined to scroll-bar (and maybe other color related) customizations
of pixmap based themes or are there problems all over the place?

For the "standard" themes, only scrollbars seem to use pixmap.  But
there is nothing that excludes other themes to use background pixmaps
for other widget.s

Maybe naive question:

If I go to the Gnome "Control Center" and select "Theme Selector", or
use equivalent functionality to "preview" themes in other desktops,
are the pixmap based themes exactly those whose background clearly
"looks like a picture" instead of just some color, maybe with a
gradient?  Is there otherwise some standard way to find out whether a
theme is pixmap based?

I know of no standard way, except by look or by checking the theme
specification files.  Obviously, none of these methods are available
programmatically.  Scroll bar thumbs that are not uniform, that is have
some lines or such in the middle, use pixmaps.
