OpenOffice uses GTk for menus etc.

The GIMP uses GTk too, and has the problem in drop down selection list.
It works like hyperlink, after click on it changing the color to white,
and only when mouse is over and background is blue I can see the text.
Any item that was used once stay grayed out.

In report:
is mentioned that
rpm -e gtk-qt-engine
solves some shading problem, and that is probably what I have.

Here is gtk-qt-engine-0.7cvs20060209-22.1 version,
right now rpm -e, and start GIMP.
The GIMP window has no more same look like KDE, but problem with missing
(shaded) text disappeared.

Missing icons are mentioned in
I can't reproduce that.
