Kaffeine DVB OSD Colors

I was looking at bug report 343 and decided to test Kaffeine 3.5.13 to see whether I could duplicate the DVB problem with Slackware 13.1.

Seems DVB works fine with 13.1. So I might recommend closing the bug.

Yet one thing I notice with TDE is the DVB OSD is different.

In KDE3 with Kaffeine 0.8.8, I have an OSD that is grayish in color, with cyan text, and a magenta rule line. Easy on my eyes.

In TDE I have an OSD that is flourescent green, with reddish text and a yellow/gold rule line. I have been trying to compare the sources, but I can't find anything that explains the color changes.

I am running KDE3 and TDE on the same machine, same video card, same Kaffeine config files, etc.

I find the flourescent green hard on my eyes and prefer the old colors. Does anybody know when the color changes occured and which sources need to be patched?

Or is this a bug?

As far as I know, Kaffeine 3.5.13 is fundamentally Kaffeine 0.8.8. Other than the TQT layer, I don't see anything in the patches lists identifying other changes.
