Thanks, I can reproduce this now. Unfortunately, its too late to get fixed
in FreeRIDE 0.9.0, but I will create a bug report for the next release.

I do have a workaround that might help. Since it seems that you want a black
background, select "Default style" and change the background to black --
this will effect the background for everything. Now just change the
foreground colors to what you want without setting the background color for
anything else.
