I take it you're not working with a laptop ;)
I know for a fact laptops show these subtle colors differently.
(Even my second screen shows the yellowish less clearly)

Actually it does. I tested it myself :)
Probably because the real object showing this is inherited from 
THintWindow. I couldn't find the actual object (with my somewhat limited 
knowledge of Lazarus) but i guess you're more familiar with it ;)

What color is that border? It does have a margin but i don't see a real 
border. (Do you in the given screenshot?) If you can't see the yellowish 
color (which i can, but on a laptop is difficult to see) it's not pretty 
without a border and even damn confusing.
