IIRC, this problem affects only the icon view. It's not the only theme
buglet in the icon view. E.g. selected items in the icon view don't pick
up the proper selection color for the icon, whereas they do for the text
below the icon (similar to the problem with selected icons in the list
But I was talking about the row/item text color. ROX assigns custom
colors to certain file types by default, which looks kinda odd when
compared to "normal" Gtk apps (yeah, I know that the coloring can be
disabled, but as a sane default, it shouldn't be enabled). IMHO if you
really want this coloring, you should use style properties with a
fallback on the default color. This way theme designer *can* support
item coloring _if_ it fits with the rest of the theme.

What "Shell command"?
