This sounds like a situation where one wants to have a window with a
colored background and dialog items in it whose bodies match the

In that case, under System 7, the active parts of checkbox and radio-button
dialog items take on the color of their containing window's :content
color, rather than their own :body color.

So you have to do

(set-part-color the-window :content the-desired-background-color)

for the window containing the checkbox or radio-button.

Setting the window's :content also seems to set its background-color
as well.
