Date/time unreadable in gnome-system-log when using light-on-dark colors

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-utils

When using a light-on-dark gnome theme ("Darklooks", for example) the date and time in gnome-system-log become unreadable. It uses a dark foreground color that doesn't appear to be defined in the theme, and this blends into the theme's dark background color, making it unreadable.

See attached screenshot.

Ubuntu 9.10
gnome-utils version 2.28.1-0ubuntu1

isn't that more like a theme issue rather than a software one?

Thanks for the report, it has been some time without any response or feedback in this bug report and we are wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest release of Ubuntu the Natty Narwhal, May you please test with that version and comment back if you're still having or not the issue? Please have a look at to know how to install that version.Thanks in advance.
