VirtualBox 4.2 ignores system's color scheme

Hello, I've been having some bad time after installing VirtualBox 4.2. It ignores my (dark/black) system color scheme and forces a white background, where my (white/grey) letters are hardly visible to completely invisible.

VirtualBox 4.1.x has always respected the system's colors, why 4.2 doesn't? The GUI should either force a complete color scheme (not recommended) like white background and black text or keep respecting system's color scheme like before (recommended).

I attach a comparasion picture between how 4.1.20 and 4.2 look on my 4 systems.

Thanks in advance.
