That is actually by design. It was a change submitted to me by someone
using a Mac, as apparently there are bugs somewhere in the Mac code.
I've included the comments below from the person that submitted them
to me. I don't own nor have access to OSX, so I cannot test anything
on it and have thus taken this person at their word.

"The Terra-like colors are from using Terra's qtlook.txt to fix the
longstanding Mac frontend issue. Not 100% ideal, but at least 1) it's
only in the settings pages and 2) it's now usable for both Mac and
non-Mac users.

As the commit note states, with the stock qtlook.txt the config
screens are unreadable because black fonts are used on Mythbuntu's
black background. I think it's an issue with OS X's Qt."
