When using tkinter from the universal2 package, the colours are completely confused. Most text tries to white, even though the background is light and this makes text in Entries completely unreadable (where the background is white). This affects both Tk and Ttk.

The first included screenshot is of a simple script which just creates a Tk label and Ttk label. The second screenshot is of the IDLE 'open module' interface in which I have typed 'test' (though, you cannot see this).

The main problem is that I cannot check whether this is a Tkinter or Tk issue as ActiveTcl only offers 8.6.9 and I haven't yet compiled my own copy of Tk.

This is not a problem on the standard installer.
