Text is turning white

Hi Everyone,

  I was doing something like (lat, lon)->height, with height mapped
to Display.Text.  This worked ok, and I could even colour it with
my favorite colour.  Then I did a setFont() on the textControl,
and apart from setting the font properly, it turned my text white!

  This is not seen when I rewrite my program to have
n->(lat, lon, height).

  Attached is a sample program to show this.  Uncomment the setFont()
line to turn the text white.

  Have I got something wrong here, or is this a bug?
