Tab Control Back Style Windows Themed Controls

A2003. I rather like the appearance I get with windows themed controls
turned on, but I'm running into an odd problem with tab controls.

When I set the back style to transparent, it really isn't transparent.
I'm finding instead of one text box or a button that I'd like to have on
the form "shining through" and displaying with all pages, it's as if the
tab control keeps the odd colour background it generates.

I originally developed the current app in question in A2003, but with a
different theme than I have right now on my PC and the colours, such as
the standard system colour -2147483633 for form backgrounds is a nice
beige/tan colour.

In spite of the nice colour, however, instead of one text box that lists
information from another form, I must place one on each of the tab's
pages. Instead of one OK button and one cancel button, I must either
raise the blinking bottom of the tab control or put a copy of the two of
these buttons on each page. It's irritating.

Anyone else run into this and have a solution? TIA
