Comboboxes in 0.9.7 don't work with mouse

First of all, it took me while to find this subforum, my apologies for
contacting the author directly. Here goes the write-up:

In version 0.9.7, the dropdown (combobox) widgets in the capture
dialogs don't work anymore. I mean, they _do_ drop down, but it is
not possible to change the selection. This happens both in the sample
rate setting and in the recording size setting.

I resurrected version 0.9.6, and things are normal there. I can
even set values for both (sample rate and recording size), and
they will then be read in 0.9.7 (but are unchangeable).

After focusing the combobox with a mouse click, it is possible to select
the sample rate (or capture size) with the keyboard. <enter> then
correctly selects the item.

I just noticed that the Color scheme selection combobox _does_
work with the mouse. Not entirely normally though: The dropdown
menu appears at the other end of the OLS window, completely
separate from where the actual Preferences dialog is (8 cm away).

Greetings,
John

I've replied you by email as well, requesting additional information and a possible workaround that might give me some clues as to what the cause of this might be.
