UI color and font options broken in 2013.8.3

After updating to build 2013.8.3 (on Windows 7 64-bit), I found a few problems with the application color and font options on the UI tab. Many colors don't get applied to all the places they did in previous versions. For example: - The Window Background color used to apply to the backgrounds of tabs and sub-tabs, instead of only to the very outside part of the window. The default white color is too bright, and doesn't have enough contrast with input regions, so I need to change it to a darker color. - The Button Background color doesn't seem to get applied to anything except the Available/Away button, when in previous versions it applied to all clickable objects, including tabs and buttons everywhere. The font dialog in the new version does not recognize all the fonts on my computer, and for the fonts it does recognize, it only shows the bold and bold italic versions of many of them, not the normal version. If I change the font or the text size (I need it quite a bit bigger than the default due to bad eyesight) the changes are only applied to the font selection dialog itself and to the buttons at the very top of the window, and nothing else. When using any font other than the default "MS Shell Dlg 2" font, the few text objects that do use the new font are rendered badly, with blurry anti-aliasing, some letters overlapping, etc. For now I have reverted to the previous 2013.5.18 version. Hopefully these problems can be fixed soon!
