I think that it's bug in JDK 1.02
for win95 (at least I checked it with this release), and
found this problem several months ago too

To make custom looking components
override Canvas.class :(

You can't change an AWT Button's color.  Since it is done
with an OS-specific peer, it uses whatever the system thinks
is the correct color for a button.  You would have to make
your own button class - unquestionably a pain.
