Accessibility problem with fonts and themes in software center

Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

When changing theme to "high contrast inverse" some of the fonts in the software center became unreadable on mouseover because the contrast is very LOW (how ironic :).
When chaning theme back to clearlooks, most of the fonts on the same screen become unreadable, as they are rendered white-on-white.
I will attach screenshots.

The two bugs reported here look fixed to me in trunk r2275. None of the text changes color on hover, and all colors are reset correctly after changing to a different theme and back again.

There are plenty of problems remaining with USC in High Contrast Inverse -- bug 844814, bug 845005, and bug 845010 -- just not these two. Please reopen with an updated screenshot if you see otherwise. Thanks.

Changed in software-center (Ubuntu):
