Has anyone ever figured out a solution to this ancient bug?

Attached I have a cheat where I have a second data frame below the real data frame but this trick only works with white space.

It's still unresolved in Arc10.

Is it still a problem in 10.1 - if not, perhaps another reason to upgrade (again)?

Unfortunately, if you are talking about NIM006938 (which is referenced in that KB), then it is not fixed. The reason being is that it is a limitation of the Windows GDI graphics engine we use.

I just encountered the rounded corners bug for the first time while using 10.2.  My issue was a little different than the transparency or raster overlap problems.  I had the ESRI Shaded Relief basemap in a separate layout to be used as an extent indicator.  The basemap caused the same rounded corners issue.  I removed the basemap and recreated the look I wanted with feature classes and it took care of the rounded corners just fine.
