Well in principle this should be defined through the gtk style, though I
can think of no reason why anyonewould change the default text to white.

This in turn is defined in .gtkrc in your home directory. I suggest you
fire up the control panel and try choosing a new style. I any case it
appears evolution is doing something really nasty to the gtk settings. Try
filing a bug against evolution.

Good Luck!
