Remember I'm a GTK noob, but maybe this will help.  I pulled some GTK 
theme info from within my app and did some testing.

Inside GetSysGCValues (from GTKProc.inc,) the color is set to the 
CORRECT value using:
    Result.foreground := Style^.bg[GTK_STATE_NORMAL];

However, it reaches the following code at the end of that routine and 
zero's the value:

  if (style <> nil) then
    if  (style^.colormap <> nil) then

I looked up the gdk_colormap_query_color function and found this on 
Gnome's site:
"This function is rarely useful; it's used for example to implement the 
eyedropper feature in GtkColorSelection 

So I have no idea what the goal is with it...

If I add an exit after the Result.foreground line, everything works 
great.  But, I dunno what else this might break...
