Package: boinc-manager
Version: 6.2.18-1
Severity: normal
File: /usr/bin/boincmgr

boincmgr is behaving badly with a dark theme. I'm using 'aud-Default' from
audacious, and I'm attaching what's the result of boincmgr.

Fig1 is the Project tab: as you can see the buttons and tabs are correctly
rendered, while the list is not. It seems like it hardcodes the color for the
background and so, but not for text (since it's white, on a light background).

Fig2 is the Message, where both the text and background colors are the default,
not getting them from the theme.

Fig3 showas that the theme contains the color for alternative backgrounds (black
and dark gray) taken from gimp (the same 'Save' windows is correctly shown in
iceweasel, if that can help).

That said, boincmgr is almost un-usable with this theme, because I can't see
what's happening :) I need to highlight every item in a list to see what's going
