Screenshot that shows the problem

With some themes (like Adwaita for GTK2) the foreground and background colors of the tooltips are set to too similar colors (like dark gray and black or black and black). That makes impossible to read the text. See attached screenshot for an example.

Why "on dark Linux themes"? Adwaita is a light theme, just the tooltips have a dark background. See the screenshot.
