Description of problem:
The white font in the sidebar panels of the red hat linux theme is hard to
read against the light grey background.  I suggest it is changed to a black

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Start nautilus
2. Use Red Hat Linux (default) theme.
3.  Minimize all tab sidebar windows to view file information.

Actual Results:  Font is white on a light grey background.

Expected Results:  Font should be black on a light grey background.

I agree, the font color here is actually chosen dynamically to contrast with the
background; if you open "backgrounds and emblems" and manually drag the
Apparition or Silver color into the sidebar, then nautilus correctly uses a
black font. I think it just fails to properly choose the font color when the
window is first opened.

I verified that dragging the apparition color over the panel does indeed change
the font color to black, but it only changes the side panel for that directory.
 Moving to another directory still results in a white font.

Since you said this is drawn dynamically, might I be better off filing this
report in the nautilus bug database?

Will be in the next Nautilus package. The problem was that the default Nautilus
theme hardcoded the color, overriding the autoselection.
