Hey, The intent of this change is to make sure that tracker uses the document text color per default, only falling back to the black/white text if the contrast is too low.

The problem is a bit that the previous check whether the window was the desktop was a bit broken, so i did remove it. The current version does check the desktop bg color, but only uses black or white if the contrast is too low, now i could increase the needed contrast for this, but i am unsure if this will fix it in this case.

Document text is simply the wrong color to use for the Desktop text. The default document background is white or close to, and the default desktop background is usually much darker than that. We may need a new category for desktop text color, or go back to using black or white.

White text color it better suited for default desktop background color.

In this case i might try to instead fix the is desktop check (and properly rename it to "had costum background" or something), aswell as introduce a per-directory text color, to be set via the background prefs.

please retest after hrev54800

(To me the issue appears to be gone, but i am not perfectly sure that i have the right bg color to test)

The algorithm used in hrev54800 gives good results, and is back to white on the default blue desktop.
