--- Comment #1 from Michael Meeks <michael.meeks at novell.com> ---
I've pushed a patch to master:


Which disables this auto-detection by default; a user can still turn that on
again if they want. I'd love to back-port this to 4.1.x - but it'd be good to
have some UX input on this.

The previous algorithm looks for a couple of theme colours and if both are dark
auto-switches to 'high contrast mode'. IMHO our high contrast mode should be
implemented by using a different set of theme colours rather than this approach
but ...

Other ways to detect under Linux might be to grok the theme name and if it
includes 'highcontrast' then enable that setting, otherwise never do it.

Thoughts from designers / UX advice much appreciated.
