Calc fails to invert color of selection box and cursor to make them visible against a black background
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open attachment, or apply black background to a block of cells in both Excel and Calc
2. in each program, click a cell in the middle of the black area
In Excel, the selection box is drawn in white and plainly visible.
In Calc, the selection box is always drawn in black and is thus invisible (same problem can occur with the cursor icon)
Calc should behave like Excel so user can see what's selected.

steps and demo for report 108013
Note: If you select a range of the black-backgrounded cells, the selection box is drawn in blue and is thus visible - the problem only occurs with the selection of a single cell. Of course, if the background were the right shade of blue, the problem would be reversed and would only occur with multiple cells selected. The root cause is that there's no code to look for a match between the UI element and the background and change the UI element to be visible (Excel does this).

cursor completely invisible here
Here's a better demonstration of the problem - the background here (166-166-166) is common because it's one of the Excel defaults.
1. click in any cell - the cursor is absolutely invisible.
