drop down menus from app toolbar have black background

Bug Description

In current precise, opening software-center and clicking on the dropdown arrows next to the "All apps"/"Installed" buttons in the top toolbar gives a menu with a pitch black background. This might be because I'm using the light Radiance theme instead of standard Ambiance, but I think even with Ambiance it should not be that black. It should just use the default theme colors IMHO.

Attaching screenshot.

I debugged this for a bit but I'm stuck currently. I can not reproduce this on oneriric or with different themes like adwaita or the highcontrast ones. I wonder if its something in the theme itself?
