Yeah, these files look harmless.

Yes, this is very strange.  Since it is the same theme, it should look
the same on both Emacses.

I don't believe this can be a cause.  GTK should effect only the
appearance of such things as menu-bar, toolbar and scroll bars.  But,
well, I don't have any other idea to explain the difference.

BTW, did you try some other themes?  I would check if this difference in
brightness happens with other themes or not.
