Notice the black tooltip right in the center

I upgraded to KDE 4.7 and after the upgrade all the tooltips in LibreOffice are
suddenly black text on a black background.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Install Libre Office and KDE 4.7.0
2) Open a LibreOffice document.
3) Hover over anything to make a tooltip appear.

Actual Results:  
Black text on black background tooltips.

Expected Results:  
Black text on blue background like the rest of the tooltips.

I am using the following versions:
Kubuntu 11.04
Libre Office 3.3.2
KDE 4.7.0

Bug shows up on my Kubuntu 11.04 KDE 4.7.0 
LibreOffice 3.3.3 
OOO330m19 (Build:301)
tag libreoffice-, Ubuntu package 1:3.3.3-1ubuntu2

Tried changing colors of System Settings, but there was no tooltip effect within LibreOffice though tooltips are legible white on black in Firefox, for example.

This bug reports two problems:

1. that this happens, but also
2. there is no clear way to change it.

Pretty surely, somebody was trying to highlight the tool tip font.
The problem is likely something like highlighting in yellow, but
the tool tip is black and white, so you get a black highlight of
a black font.  But I cannot remove the highlighting in the themes.

Please give this some priority as it severely constrains the
usefulness of your otherwise highly useful tool.

Thank you.
