repro project

### Overview 
When using the dark UWP theme, the text entered in an Entry is not visible because the text is black on a black background. This appears to have started in 2.3.4. In 2.3.5-pre6 this happens: https://www.dropbox.com/s/05s9r3xvv85twxh/2.3.5-pre6.gif?dl=0

The issue is somewhat better in the build as you can see the text while it's being entered, but it becomes unreadable once you unfocus the Entry: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wo05iazw8chrc7q/forms_nightly.gif?dl=0 

### Steps to Reproduce
1. Run the attached UWP project
2. Enter text in the Entry control
3. Click outside the Entry in order to unfocus it

### Expected Results
You are able to see the text entered

### Actual Results
The text is not readable

It also happens on UWP Mobile.

Looks like this got fixed somewhere along the way - if I update the repro project to, the issue goes away.

Oh, never mind. It's still gone when the Entry loses focus.
