Well, right now the WinUXTheme works well for other themes.   BTW, I
dearly wish you hadn't named your theme "Windows Classic" when people
also use the same term to refer to the classic theme under Windows.
It makes it very difficult to refer to them separately. :)

Nevertheless the only step forward for the WinUXTheme right now is to
fix this bug in the way I suggested.  Yes, there are bugs, but this is
by far the most prominent one.
