Thanks Mauro, all,

   Downgrade of gtk2 (2.24.6-1 => 2.24.5-3) fixed the problem. I'll report it 
upstream and post a link. For confirming screenshots see:

Problem Seen with gtk2 2.24.6-1 [107k]

Problem fixed after downgrade to gtk2 2.24.5-3) [27k]

LibreOffice dialogue boxes -- unchecked.

   Additionally, I did see this behavior as well in GIMP, so it is gtk2 related.
