If I understand correctly then setting an activation context won't help
because by the time that an extension module is loaded the choice of
which version of the common controls DLL will be loaded has already been
made, and it may in fact already be loaded.  The system must be told at
the time that the .exe is loaded which common controls DLL it wants,
otherwise it will use the old non-themed version.  Everything I've tried
seems to confirm this, if that is not true I'd love to see some examples.
