Bug#692610: gnome-terminal: black text on black background

Package: gnome-terminal

The terminal is all black until I uncheck "Use colors from system theme" 
(it's checked by default). So apparently the default colors are black on 
black. That's not a useful color scheme if you ask me. :)

(Note that I don't have any GNOME packages installed, apart from those 
that are transitively depended/recommended by gnome-terminal.)
