It didn't have any effect, but native hhctrl.ocx just fixed the problem 
completely so I decided to stop worrying about it. So thank you.

I'm not aware of a demo. and another problem is that you'd need a real 
working server + client installation to reproduce so it would be quite a 
hassle. What I tried is using different native versions of comctl32.dll. 
This has an effect and some things work better than before.

Now I'm interested in which dll's (or so) do the actual drawing and 
handling of simple widgets like one line text entries? Scrollbars? Is it 
comctl32.dll and nothing else or does this in turn use some other libraries?

Also, it doesn't make any sense to me that (at least visually) exactly 
the same one line text entry widgets work in some places (logging in to 
the system) but not in another places (about everywhere else in the 
program.) Could this be a clue to something? Another clue is that the 
problem is strictly visual. If you enter something to a text entry, it 
will be understood properly, only not displayed on screen.
