Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

VBox: 4.0.10 Host: OpenSuSE 11.4 Guest: Win XP SP3 (with Guest Additions)

(Have searched both tickets and forums but haven't been able to find anything similar reported.)

Basically this is a fully working installation and has been since back in 4.0 days. There is one minor (cosmetic) problem in that background color handling for window texts specially in menus fails to get the right background color. Instead they are always rendered with white background color.

This happens in multiple programs running in the guest system so this is a (comestic) glitch. That should be given low priority but still it would be nice to have the text rendering 100% functional. Screenshot included.

Further information: This happens both when host is running NVidia propritary drivers as well as SW emulation so it doesn't seem Graphic driver dependent.
