I think it's controlled by the overall GTK theme.  Which one are you using?
There's one called Black-Background that seems to correctly set the background
of the tooltips.  We may need to fiddle with this when only the editor background
color is changed and not the whole theme.  Or is it that you're using the
Windows default theme and the colors are coming in through that?
