I don't use Evolution, but I do get this problem in the menus of Skype
(only) -- the highlight is the same colour as the background. I put this
down to the programmers not having as much experience of Linux as they
do of Windows or Mac APIs. It was a problem in 11.*, 12.*, and 13.* but
I haven't tried it in 14.* yet, and anyway, Skype is under new
management :-) and the interface has changed, so the problem may have
gone away.
