Bug description:
  In Xubuntu 13.10 I was able to load themes from ~/.local/share/themes.

  In Xubuntu 14.04 I can still load the GTK3 theme, but not the GTK2

  Load the themes from ~/.themes.

  Cluttered home directory.

  How to reproduce:
  1. Download a theme and put in in ~/.themes.
  2. Open settings manager and a GTK3 app. (I used gedit.)
  3. Apply the downloaded theme.
  So far everything should work.

  4.  Move the downloaded theme to ~/.local/share/themes.
  5. Apply another theme and reapply the downloaded one.
  At this point only the GTK2 theme is loaded.
