It's because there is no reliable way to change the system colors with 
GTK+3 (this is what we name "progress" I guess).

So setting the system color properties has no actual effect outside of 
controls written in Gambas.

It would be possible in Qt, but I want to keep the same behaviour in all 
GUI components.
