Bug Description

edubuntu usb live, italian version. I choose Atlanta theme, and open a termianl. Everything is black, but the window works correctly: it seems I have black characters in a black background as I can work on it blindly. See attachment.

I experience the problem with all the themes but the following ones:
Ambiance, LowContrast, HighContrast, HighContrastInverse, Radiance.
I want to add that if I first open the terminal and subsequently change the theme, the characters on the terminal window are not completely black, but the contrast is very very low as you can see from the attached screen shot. If I first change the theme and then open the terminal window it looks completely black.

This bug is actually an issue with the themes themselves rather than myunity. Therefore, I am closing this report as invalid (and couldn't be fixed in any case, since MyUnity has been removed from Quantal)
