Bug#462583: kword: "wrong" foreground color

Package: kword
Version: 1:1.6.3-3+lenny1
Severity: normal

I set the KDE background colors to dark gray and foreground colors to
white.  kword uses my background color but not my foreground.  The
result is black text on dark gray, which is hard to see.  I think if
you use the KDE background, then you should use the KDE foreground,
too; and if you ignore the foreground, then you should ignore the
background, too.  (For example, the Writer of OpenOffice ignores the
KDE colors and simply shows black text on a white background, which is

I know a workaround is to customize colors in kword (not tested,
though), but I think the default behavior should better be fixed.

By the way, I tried to submit this bug to the KDE bug tracking system,
but it didn't allow me to proceed on the ground that Debian's KDE
(version 3.4.3, right?) is too old.

Best regards,
