Look&Feel Switch Glitch

I am using the Synthetica range of Look & Feel products, which are brilliant, especially with 4 processors, and 4 G of memory. The problem I have is when switching to another Look & Feel in the same product range.
I have configured settings to have rounded corners in my JFrames. When the program starts, the rounded corner works, but when switching, the square corner shows, even though as you can see below I have specified ROUND_RECT.

Maneesh, thank you your question. The 2 components are of the JFrame class.
The code below rounds out the corners of each JFrame, otherwise you get a small white bit at each corner, which is not part of the intended design.
When the program starts where you have this bit of code, the corners are rounded. It is only when changing Look & Feel style that the corners don't behave. I cannot ask this question to
the folks who have designed Synthetica, because I have not yet purchased a license and therefore not entitled to tech support. I am still evaluating the Look&Feel. Thanks.
I agree. Here's the link:
