      Description

      > Hi All,
      >
      > Last couple of days I've been trying to root out this bug -
      > https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openjdk-8/+bug/1729558 which
      > has resulted in poor looking rendering on my machine.
      > It turns out that the cause of this behavior is that Swing tries to do
      > its own magic disabled item rendering by turning the text white and
      > shifting it a pixel in each direction. I have no doubt there was
      > probably a good reason for this, however the file has remained
      > unchanged since its initial import in 2007! (Maybe someone from Oracle
      > can find out more)
      > Removing this code (patch attached) makes disabled menu items render
      > correctly in both light and dark GTK themes. Its completely trivial,
      > but I've nonetheless provided the patch for context. There is also
      > some adjacent code that references a metacity theme called "blueprint"
      > that also seems pre 2007 era, but I've left that in as I have no idea
      > of its context.
      >
      > Appreciate if this change / bug could be reviewed & discussed. In the
      > meantime I will also forward it downstream to Ubuntu as this is where
      > I encountered it / affects my usage.
