Description
FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.7.0_04"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_04-b20)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 23.0-b21, mixed mode)

ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
Linux antonioni-desktop 3.2.0-24-generic-pae #39-Ubuntu SMP Mon May 21 18:54:21 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
Default configuration.

A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
When a Swing desktop application using the native L&F has JMenu components, they have a dark foreground color in the Ambiance theme (the default theme of Ubuntu), becoming unreadable - because the background color of the Jmenu component is dark, too.

When the theme is a light theme, like the Ambiance theme, the foreground color of the JMenu component is legible.

REGRESSION.  Last worked in version 7

STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
Open a Swing desktop application using the native L&F with JMenu components in the Ubuntu system, using the Ambiance theme (the default theme).
See that the foregrounds of the JMenus are dark, becoming unreadable.

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
EXPECTED -
A readable foreground in JMenu components (see the native menus of the Ambiance theme).
ACTUAL -
The foreground of the JMenu component is unreadable.

REPRODUCIBILITY :
This bug can be reproduced always.
