(Control Panel > General > About product)

1) Download and install the Meta theme to your tablet from Extras.
2) Install RTCOMM and reboot.
3) Select one of the standard themes on the tablet and apply it, such as Echo.
4) Join a chatroom through IRC (idle plugin), preferably one that is relatively
5) Notice the colors of the various events in the chatroom (such as green for
channel join/part messages).
6) Switch theme to Meta.
7) Go back to the chatroom and watch as new events come up.

EXPECTED OUTCOME: Text color adjustments made to compensate for the new theme
colors should be applied to ALL chatroom text.

ACTUAL OUTCOME: Text color adjustments are only made to new events made since
the theme was applied, leaving all text from before the theme switch in the old
colors. This causes some events to be difficult or impossible to read,
depending on what themes you are switching to/from.



OTHER COMMENTS: I realize that this is probably too late for Fremantle and that
the IRC plugin will not be included with Fremantle, but I wanted to document
this bug and hopefully get it fixed in Mer.

A small explanation is in order for these attachments.

"After switch" takes place at about step 7 of my reproduction steps, switching
to the Meta theme and watching the text differences.

"After switching back" is what you'd see after you switched back from Meta to
Echo, again noticing the color differences in the text.

This is a WONTFIX for Maemo4.
If bug 5139 for Maemo5 gets solved in the future and if the problem reporterd
here will be still an issue in Maemo5 after fixing bug 5139, please update this
report (steps, Version field) and reopen it. Thanks.
