Some text will appear to be of the wrong color only in some parts, as if a texture was overlayed on it. This seems to be mostly happening with near-white colors. Could be related to use of transparent PNGs for background.

Only appeared after 4b2. This problem is not related to the monitor, as taking a screen shot and zooming in on that screen still exhibits the odd coloring.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to site http://freelancer-swwt.com/Forum/index.php
2. Look at main menu (Home, Help, etc.)
Actual Results:  
The text appears to be bleeding and does not have the proper color.

Expected Results:  
The text should be a solid color very close to white.

Default theme, few extensions installed.

I'm glad to report that this bug is no more present, at least here. I believe it was fixed in one of the beta versions, though I can't recall which.
