Highlighting SQL lines makes the text unreadable.

How to repeat:
From the Database menu, Connect to database... (Ctrl U)

Enter some SQL statements

Highlight the text -- it is unreadable

Suggested fix:
Use a sensible color scheme, e.g., http://ethanschoonover.com/solarized

Best is probably to make the selection color lighter. It's modeled after the system highlight, but that's too dark.
