New submission from Sureyya Sahin:

I am trying to use IDLE in kde linux environment (kubuntu 12.10). I recently switched to a dark color scheme from kde settings and discovered that IDLE is having issues with dark colors.

The Completions boxes are not readable, after I switched to the dark color scheme in kde. The completions are white text on white background colored boxes which is making the text unreadable. If I select the options in the completions dialog box, my selection is highlighted and thus I can read the text.
