The Delphi and BCB IDEs fail to adopt window manager colour schemes with regard to tooltips. When a "dark" scheme is chosen that causes IDE tooltip text to change to a light colour, e.g., white, it's impossible to read the text against the seemingly hardcoded yellow background.
Steps to Reproduce:
Under KDE, select the Digital CDE colour scheme,
then start Kylix. The IDE uses the selected colours
except for the tooltip background.
Only use colour schemes that have a text colour that
is high-contrast against the yellow tooltip
