Combo Box Problem When Running A2003 Database In A2007

P: n/a
I've found a painful bug when running an Access 2003 database under
Access 2007. It manifests in both XP and Vista.

Some combo boxes on some forms become transparent when they lose
focus. It seems to be completely random as to which combo boxes on
which forms are affected. I've tried importing the forms into a new
A2007 database, but the bug persists. It seems that if the forms were
created in A2003 they have the potential to manifest the problem.

The only fix that I've found so far is to create a new form, copy all
the objects from the original form to the new form and then copy the
code to the new form. Very labour intensive. Fortunately I only have
a few forms that are affected.

Has anyone else seen this and/or heard of a less time consuming fix?

More Info. This only seems to be a problem when a custom colour is
used for the form's background colour.
