Yeah, this tells me they used owner-drawn buttons, which is only 
supported if you use version 6 controls. The version 6 controls 
are nice btw even if you don't use this specific feature, they 
also come with automatic theme support and a few other nice 
things. I actually recommend in the docs that you use this for 
simpledisplay/minigui applications too, just then you also need 
to provide a draw method to do the text+image.

It isn't hard to do, about a dozen lines for this basic case that 
you can just opt into and use the default draw for other cases.

I was thinking about adding one of those anyway (another nice 
thing you can do is change the background color), I just haven't 
gotten around to it yet. Maybe I'll do it tomorrow.

Keep an eye on this thread, if I do, I'll let you know.
