No one has reported the disclosure triangle problem before, and it works fine on my 10.6.5 MacBook Pro.  Is there any chance that another gtk installation could be leaking into Gnucash's environment?

The toolbar problem is a long-running issue with gtk quartz; the work around is to click in the toolbar's blank space or on the title bar for the window or dialog box that isn't receiving the click event.
