In case you set globally the EnableEmbeddedBaseStylesheet to false you will have to register the needed control base CSS file by hand.
I am not quite sure that I correctly understand why including the base CSS files brings the described issue. Therefore, in case the issue persists could you open a regular support ticket and send possibly a simple running project
so that I can examine it locally?
