@Blinghound - As I said, I've been using the skin for almost a year and never noticed the cursor. After your query today, I squinted my eyes really tight and moved MB to my secondary monitor and I can faintly see the flashing cursor. It seems to have a reddish color, but it's so dark that it's barely visible. Looking at how some of the other (real) dark skins handle this, most that have a dark bg for the search box have a white cursor. Which, IMO, would work well there, since the criteria drop-down indicator is also white.
Thanks in advance for your help. I've used AeroBee this long without the cursor, so if it takes you more than the weekend to get it fixed, I can live with it.
There's another (very) minor issue in the search box that appears no matter what skin is used. So I'll post it in the bug report forum.
