So I use a *nix style windows shell geared more towards power users called bblean. One of the features it provides is the ability to shade windows ala *nix window managers. It does this by overriding the style for the title bar for all the windows. This was causing a problem with Chrome since chrome draws it's own title bar replacement ( tabs in this case). It was really annoying.
Well, it turns out that this has been solved. Short answer is: blackbox -> bbleanskin -> Edit Exclusions and then just add 'chrome.exe' to the list.
