For the record: I opened a ticket also for that.

... which got picked up:

--- Comment #3 from Scott Talbert <swt at XXXX> ---
Investigated.  Looks to be a wxWidgets issue - the
wxRendererNative::DrawCheckBox() function doesn't seem to actually draw the
checkbox when in the checked state.  Reported upstream:

and immediately fixed there.
Now I expect that it will be backported to Fedora and an update shipped.
Other affected distros may do the same, so if one of you has the same
issue, you may point them to wxWidgets bug#17240.
