highlighted radio/check boxes disappear
I've been experiencing a problem where the selected radio button or checkbox in applications disappear. When it's a radio button, it's not too much of a problem, but on checkboxes it prevents me from determining which box is actually checked.
Is anyone experiencing a similar problem?
This isn't happening with all applications, but I haven't been able to narrow it down to a particular type of application.
The problem occurs within web sites, but not in Firefox's own dialogs. This also occurs withing the CompizConfig Settings Manager. I have been able to reproduce the problem under kwin.

Re: highlighted radio/check boxes disappear
I have stumbled across the solution accidentally. It was related to the theme that KDE was applying for GTK applications. I just installed another GTK application and, when I used it for the first time, it reported:
So, I changed the GTK theme (System Settings -> Appearance -> GTK Styles and Fonts) used to something else and the problem went away.
The theme engine you are using, Qt, is incompatible with some of the features used by modern skins. The incompatible features have been disabled for this session.
