	I have an interesting one for you, in openOffice, all of the icons on the 
toolbars and all of the text of the context menus disappear when I click on a 
document in writer. If I brush the mouse over the toolbar or menu, the 
icons/text reappears while the icon or text has focus, but then disappears 
again when the focus leaves. I have a number of illustrative screenshots 






Version Information:


	The problem seems to have started after changing the kde control center 
setting for "Appearance & Themes" -> "GTK Styles and Fonts" -> "Use my KDE 
style in GTK applications". I just confirmed this on an X86_64 box that I had 
not made this setting on. I opened ooowriter and all buttons were there in a 
very flat and ugly style. I then changed the above setting which required a 
KDE restart. So I logged out and logged back in, reopened the same document 
and all of the buttons started disappearing.

	Has anyone else seen anything like this? More importantly, how do I fix it?
