[New-bugs-announce] [issue10171] Ugly buttons in some Tkinter objects in Windows

New submission from Rafe Kettler <rafe.kettler at gmail.com>:

Some of the dialogs in Tkinter don't correctly show buttons in newer versions of Windows (XP, Vista, 7). Instead, they use square Win2000-and-before-type buttons. Here's some Python 2.7 code that illustrates this:

import tkMessageBox

import tkColorChooser

I attached a screenshot as well, illustrating what is meant by "ugly buttons."

I'm not sure if this is on the Tk or Tkinter side, but since the rest of Tkinter uses new-style buttons, these few objects should too (as far as I'm aware, these are the only objects that exhibit this behavior.
