Wine and XP Themes

I would like to use the XP ClearLooks theme that is available to make
Wine apps blend in with my GNOME desktop. However, it seems that using
themes in Wine makes it rather slow. Is this a known problem, is there a
workaround of some kind, a registry setting or a patch, or is it best
just not to use themes with Wine right now? I am running Wine 0.9.31.

According to a Google search, there seem to be scattered reports of this
problem but no diagnosis or solution.
