Display problem with TCoolbar in Delphi 2010 when not using runtime Themes in application

Since we use Delphi 2010 we're having a problem with all TCoolBar in our applications. We are not using the runtime Themes. The left part of the component (grip) is invisible and unavailable (no mouse pointer, no action). The content of the coolbar (TToolBar) works as usual.

When runtime themes are enabled in application, the coolbar works perfectly. Unfortunately we cannot use themes since some other components don't work correctly.

Does someone have a solution/workaround to this problem?

I think borland uses a TControlbar instead of a TCoolbar
I remember I stopped using TCoolbar because of all the bugs

this is also what i find on google and in the embarcadero/borland qc

Thanks a lot for your advice. I replaced my CoolBars with ControlBars, it doesn't work exactly the same (normal cursor on grip, toolbars size is fixed) but it's ok. Thanks!
