Are you sure these aren't focus issues?  When I run mythfrontend on my
dev box and I move the mouse outside of the mythfrontend window, I see
something exactly like what you're describing, the colors change and
no button is highlited (since none of them have focus).

On my production system, I have been bothered by a "bug" for a long time
where a popup would come up and the proper button would be highlighted,
but occasionally another button would be a 3rd color different than the
highlighted and non-highlighted buttons.  One day it hit me that this
oddball button was under the invisible mouse pointer.  When I moved the
mouse outside of the popup area, the 3rd-colored button changed to
the non-highlighted color.  Now I try to keep my mouse at the edge of
the screen, but when the frontend restarts, X puts the mouse in the
middle of the screen and I have to move the mouse otherwise an
occasional popup will have this odd-colored button.
