First off, what kind of theme are you using? I have implemented a GTK Theme 
compatibility wherever possible. This means that the default background 
color aka clWindow, clWindowText etc, is going to Match your themes almost 
exactly. I haven't had any issues with it yet, however it does look rather 
bizzare on some themes.(NOT because it is wrong, but because the default 
colors look strange in a Text Edit) . For instance one Theme I have on my 
system is EnGradient EMacs, where the Window color is light Green, and the 
Text color is light Peach, which looks really wierd in a Text Edit, 
especially given the other defaults.

I would suggest you override the default Text Background colors  with 
White.. and the default text color with black. Which it should be anyway.. 
In Delphi the default color is always White, not clWindow. etc.
