Description of problem:

notify-send produces a dialog with a black screen. This may be very problematic in applications like Thunderbird as the text can't be visible as it's using black fonts.

Also urgency icon / colour is not visible.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. notify-send -u critical "Vader" "said darkness"
Actual results:

black pop-up dialog with unrecognisable urgency and white text

Expected results:

pop-up dialog displayed by using system colours

This sounds more like a thunderbird bug, if it's forcing black text regardless of the notification theme.
