Hey, I said I like the theme!  Cut me some slack ;-)

I just tried to point out why things happen the way they do and suggest
how that could be improved.  If someone want to do the legwork and feed
that back to Devuan, fine.  If not, you won't hear me complain.

If something like I suggested does get in, it may be one more reason to
choose Devuan because it allows you to opt out of its default theme ;-)

Hope this helps,
