We use the video invert operation to select and unselect boxes and that 
generates
very strange and uncontrollable colors for the selection. The color selection 
depends
on the current set of colors used in the system.
The right solution is to change the way we display the selection. We planned 
to do so
but we didn't already find the time. I guess it's probably urgent to change 
now.
What do you think?

I had a look at your bug report page:
We only have one field now, so it's not ambiguous. I propose to remove the 
text "Address"
What do you think?
For the tooltip background color, I'll see if it's more controllable.
