Bug report 727 was filed against the OSD colors. Reading the report discussion reveals the colors are estabalished in xine-part/kxinewidget.h, which is from where gets built. We haven't investigated further. We still need to determine whether Qt3 is playing a role because the code in Kaffeine 3.5.13 is identical to Kaffeine 0.8.8, which I have installed in KDE 3.5.10 on the same hardware and do not experience the problem.

With your sleuthing we now can narrow the focus to a specific shared library and that helps!

Do you have access to the Bugzilla to add that information? If not then let me know and I'll add that tidbit of information.
