Indeed, starting with 3.4, Inverse started to break. Just open up a mail in Evolution and you'll see the problem. This didn't exist in previous GNOME versions.
Inverse was removed from 3.6 altogether. Its why I haven't been able to use 3.6 at all. I tried it, gave it my best shot, and just couldn't do it. So I went back to a clean 3.4 installation, even with its brokenness.
Disclaimer: I don't know how the Inverse theme is written. If it is an identical copy of the default theme, but with colors changed, it *will* be a lot of work to keep it in sync with the default theme *if that is done by hand*.
I'm on Gnome 3.6 (openSUSE 12.2), and I just turned these on:
* Magnifier / Zoom at 1.0 magnification
* White-on-black on the "Color Effects" for the magnifier.
From my uninformed viewpoint, it looks quite pleasant - dark and not too
contrasty. The shadows under windows are a bit weird, as they turn into highlighted halos. It looks usable, but of course I'm not behind Bryen's eyes :)
Bryen, how is the magnifier with inverted colors different from the old Inverse theme? Or what is it that makes the magnifier unusable for you?
