This is wrong, 8^(

+        class.style |= CS_GLOBALCLASS;
+        class.hInstance = COMCTL32_hModule;

The point in THEMING_Initialize was to get the current global classes
and make locals for each process. So that process could have it. Not
the whole system!

Note from a msdn blog, "If you pass the CS_GLOBALCLASS flag when
registering the class, then the window manager will ignore the
instance handle when looking for your class. All of the USER32 classes
are registered as global."

I spent a week now looking through it all, ReactOS is handling the
class registration correctly. My best guess, if themes is active do as
the original code had it before and use IsThemeActive like it is
setup. Keep class.hInstance = COMCTL32_hModule; and don't use
CS_GLOBALCLAS so you can find it again.
