Screenshot of Writer with huge toolbars


I use a custom theme on my Windows 7 installation. Apparently Apache Open Office (4.0.1) is the only program having issues with it. When I switch to default Windows Theme that issue disappears. When I switch back to my custom Theme - having (e.g.) Writer still open - it takes unusually long for the theme to be switched until OpenOffice crashes.
I am able to work around this issue, when I choose "Disable Visual Theme" ("Visuelle Designs deaktivieren" in german) in compatibility settings. But when I try to "Save As..." no dialog is opened at all.

Looking this issue up in the internet shows that this issue already existed in version 3.3.

I couldn't find a related issue or a solution yet.
I cannot properly use OpenOffice this way and I won't change my theme, because a single application has issues with it.

Best regards,
Carsten A.

The "Save As..." dialog returned after I went to 'Extras -> Einstellungen -> OpenOffice -> Allgemein' and checked "OpenOffice-Dialoge verwenden". (Sorry I use a german localized version and don't know the english names.)

Please provide a download link for the theme you use.

(Sorry for the late report from my side. I did not receive any email notification and forgot about this issue.)

I am using the Theme "Radiance" found at devianart:
