I think I fixed this by modifying ptolemy/gui/Query.java so
that it uses JCheckBox where it should.

I verified that the Plot formatter has square check boxes on the right
and round radio buttons for the Mark.

I also verified that the CT Director configuration panel now has a
square checkbox for "Synchronize to realtime".

In the port dialog, I think we were always using square boxes
for input, output and multiport.  A port can be both an input and
an output or neither, so we are ok here.

This change means that all the dialogs in the Ptolemy docs need to be
updated.  I'm not sure I like having both square and round boxes, they
make the interface more cluttered.  However, it is more correct from
a UI design point of view to use square boxes for check boxes and round
circles for radio buttons.

I'm marking this bug as "Fixed", I hope that is ok with the Kepler folks.
There is a chance that we might revert to the previous behavior, in
which case I'll mark this bug as unfixed.
