We had an issue but it was only happening for ToolStrip menus. Is that the
case, or is it happening with other controls as well? I remember testing
extensively with dark themes and the only issue was related to ToolStrip
(which has been fixed in 2.4/2.6/trunk, but didn't make it in the version
you have).

As Stifu mentioned, you can force the controls using the ForeColor property
(that applies as well for ToolStrip). Otherwise, there's no way to force our
theme engine to *not* detect the system colors unfortunately (given a gnome
session running).
