Workarounds? Why can't "the bug" be fixed?

TSpeedButton should be able to do this, since it's custom drawn ?

This is an unfortenate one indeed. I'd hardly call it a show stopper 
though; even can be worked around on LCL level by perhaps implementing 
some 'OnPaint' or a panel or graphic control on top that draws the 
requested color. If you want background pictures, which is not a very 
big step from just a color, you need something like that always.
