I've not looked at the xml for the theme but it sounds like you just
need to add a <selectedinactive> state to be buttonlist definition the
buttontree is using. You will probably find the buttonlist is defined in
the theme's base.xml.
You'd probably be better contacting the theme author and telling him/her
about the problem and I'm sure they will fix it and pass the necessary
changes to us.
If you don't get any joy let me know and I'll fix it myself :)
I will check the file you suggested.
I'm not very familiar with themes, but let's see what happens when I try..
