    Bug report: WPF shows graphical glitches with patched uxtheme.dll

    Yesterday I did a beta release of some WPF software I've been working on, and
    today a user sent me a screenshot showing some remarkable graphical glitches
    and the following information:

    "I am having a really weird problem. When I start shaim, there are all sorts
    of graphical glitches. When I first load it, there is a red zero on the right
    hand side. The deeper into the program I go (like adding protocols and such)
    there are other errors. They are always in yellow and red if that helps. I
    don't know if it's a specific problem with shaim because I don't use WPF for
    anything else."

    The screenshot is here: http://csammisrun.net/images/glitches.jpg (the
    "Not a glitch" label is where he blurred out information for privacy purposes)

    I *think* this is happening because he's running a non-MS theme under a
    patched uxtheme.dll. No one else has seen this sort of error, and the only
    other thing I can think of is artifacting from his video card, but he says he
    hasn't seen this from any other application.

    Of course, if it is the uxtheme.dll at work, I seriously doubt this is ever
    going to be supported. The problem is a symptom of patching a system file to
    allow unsigned themes, but I thought I should bring it to the MS developers'
    attention anyway.

    Chris, can you please post this on the Product Feedback Center? That will
    get the issue into the team's bug database, get someone to look at it,
    reproduce it and resolve it appropriately.
