Using "KDE tooltip background" on Google shows some postings
in various forums and mailing lists discussing the same
problem. It seems that the light-yellow background color
of tooltips is hardwired in KDE < 4 and that you can't change
it unless you recompile KDE. Mystery still remains as to
why tooltips of KDE apps use black text color whereas
those of non-KDE apps use the text color (white in my case)
specified in the KDE Control Center.
In KDE 4, if I understand correctly what I gathered from
the Internet, it seems that tooltips are themable, and so
I hope this problem will go away.
