Description of problem:
I have multiple Evolution mail accounts. When I create an email and click on the
select list to choose which account to send the mail as, the currently selected
item is shown with white text which is quite unreadable. Selecting another
entry, then going back to the previous selection will cause it to repaint with
black text. I'm guessing this is just a minor initial painting bug.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Should be able to figure out from description.

Bug in GTK 1.2 Bluecurve theme.

Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2002-08-14 13:24:23 UTC
This is because gtk1 is not drawing the selected background for the menuitem
that is active unless you have the pointer over it. If you drop down an
optionmenu that is wider than the menu itself by clicking on the right side you
will get this. 

The color needs to be white to work when the selected background (a gradient) is
drawn, so i don't know how to fix this.

hp? owen?

Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at
