The problem with those two dialogs is the progress bar that's below the
list controls. I haven't found a way (yet) to make them show nice on an
Aero background. So I have to keep them on the gray background. That's
also why the speed label in the progress dialog is on the gray
background: it's on the same vertical position as the progress bar.
But I'm working on that...

in which dialog?

I noticed that too in explorer. But I think to make this work it's
required to handle the WM_MOUSEMOVE message, check whether the left
button is pressed and move the window 'manually'. I haven't disabled
anything so I don't think that behavior is automatic.
