Yeah, that's why I am thinking its the theme css file that's doing it. Cause if the icon theme is messing it up it would be all the icons. The message tray however has it's own style settings in the css file, telling how to display the icons, there size, the background color, text color, etc etc. It sound more to me like there is syntax error somewhere about there and the message tray is just getting its style setings a bit messed up. I've had similar issues these past few weeks working on my own shell and gtk3 theme for gnome.

Sorry missed this question, but I am sure you figured out by now, no you just need to cycle your themes in the "gnome-tweak-tool" to see changes... its how I live edit my theme right now... Knowing what to edit is the hard part though... there are many different style levels of the message tray, some control the buttons, some the text beside the buttons or within and some the whole message tray itself....

You can always look at other example from another theme, either on your own system or on gnome-look.org

installing the gnome desktop option using tasksel seemed to fix this, after the update to stretch...

took a while!

Thanks you for necroing an over a year old thred! /s
For you info, vanilla GNOME has got rid of "legacy" system tray, so you'll need third-party extesions for it when you upgrade to Buster. Oh, and desktop icons, you'll need an extension for that, too.
